 We observed field of the Swift  GRB 111103A  (Stroh et al. GCN 12518) with
 Zeiss-600 telescope of Mt.Terskol observatory in R filter between Nov. 3
 (UT) 16:16:02 - 16:49:00. We took 60 frames with exposure of 30
 seconds under favourable weather conditions and seeing (FWHM) of about
 1.5''. We do not detect any source on a stacked frame within BAT
 ground-calculated error circle (Sakamoto et al., GCN 12523). A
 photometry is based on the USNO B1.0  nearby stars.
