The robotic 0.76-m Katzman Automatic Imaging Telescope (KAIT) at Lick
Observatory observed GRB 110905A (Pagani et al., GCN 12327). 
The automatic sequence started at 06:18:04 UT, ~ 30 minutes after
the BAT trigger.  Our image processing pipeline found a new
object within the BAT error circle, with the following position:

R. A. = 18:35:43.44
DEC.  = -19:19:10.5  (J2000), 

The object has a magnitude of R ~ 16 at 06:19:48 UT (
calibrated to USNO B1). Observations are still ongoing.
