MASTER II  robotic double telescope (MASTER-Net: located at Tunka (Baykal) was pointed to the 
120106A (Immler et al., GCN  Circ 12810) 19 s after notice time and 46 sec 
after GRB trigger time at  14:16:24.24 UT (Ivanov et al., GCN CIRC 12811).

On our first (10s exposure) set  we haven`t
found optical transient  within preliminary SWIFT XRT error-box (Immler
et al., GCN Circ 12810).

But we found marginally OT at East telescope (- polarizations) outside
preliminary X-ray  error box (Immler et al., GCN Circ 12810). The position
of this OT is coincided with enhanced Swift-XRT position (Evans et al.,
GCN CIRC 12813).
