We observed the field of the possible XRT afterglow (D'Elia et al.,
GCN 16324) of GRB 140523A (von Kienlin et al., GCN 16321; Vianello et
al., GCN 16322) using the 1m telescope located at Nanshan, Xinjiang,
China. Observations started at 15:06:12 UT on 2014-05-24 (i.e., 36.0
hr after the burst), and 2x180s and 2x600s R-band frames were

No optical source is detected at the XRT position down to a limiting
magnitude of R=20.5, calibrated with the SDSS field.
