Abstract

We present the photometric results of the Robotic Palomar 60-inch Telescope (P60) observations for all relevant GRB optical afterglows during 2005-2006. The quick response time of the telescope allows us to observe the optical transients (OT) sometimes as early as 120 s after the trigger. With a 1.5-m aperture, we can follow the multi-color evolution of the afterglow well beyond the limits of most small rapid-response facilities.
