Gamma Ray Burst 971024
The RXTE All-Sky Monitor detected a weak burst on 24 October 1997.
Buell Jannuzi and Arjun Dey imaged the error box on the nights of 25 October
and 26 October (civil time) using the KPNO 4m and
the prime focus Mosaic imager, providing a 35 arcminute field of view.
On each night we obtained five 10 minute exposures in the R-band. The
first night's observations were obtained under
apparently photometric conditions (still need to reduce
our data and standards). The seeing was poor (1.5" and 2" FWHM).
Reduced and binned (2x2 block averaged of the original 8k x 8k) images are
now available via the NOAO Web page.
Following are links to GRB 971024 followup data obtained at Kitt Peak.
This page is under active development. If you use the images, we would
appreciate appropriate acknowledgements.

For this burst, we request that you state that the Kitt Peak data were
obtained by the NOAO Deep Widefield Survey team (Jannuzi, Dey et al) using the
CCD Mosaic camera at the KPNO 4m telescope.
