Ontario, Canada (Bortle Class 4-5 sky).

Observations were made under transparent skies, but with poor seeing.  Weather 
was good with an ambient temperature of -4C.  No Moon was present.

Automatic imaging in the V-band detected the afterglow candidate reported by 
Beardmore et al., Klotz et al. (GCN 11630) at:

RA 10: 58: 31.34 DEC +67 31 31.4 (J2000)

A 180s calibrated image gives a preliminary magnitude of 15.41 (V-band).
The magnitude is estimated with the nearby NOMAD1 star 1574-0155894 (Vmag
