We observed the field of the Swift GRB 140907A  (Krimm et al., GCN 
16788) with with AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy). We 
obtained several images on Sep., 08 and Sep. 9.  Within enhanced XRT 
error circle  (Goadet al., GCN 16795) we clearly detect the afterglow 
(Xu et al., GCN 16789; Kuin and Krimm, GCN 16791).
Preliminary photometry is following:
