Abstract. The Automated Patrol Telescope (APT) is a wide-field (5
5
), modi-
fied Schmidt capable of covering large gamma-ray burst (GRB) localization regions to
produce a high rate of GRB optical emission measurements. Accounting for factors
such as bad weather and incomplete overlap of our field and large GRB localization
regions, we estimate our search will image the actual location of 20-41 BATSE GRB
