J. Gorosabel (IAA-CSIC/UPV-EHU), S. Hellmich (DLR), A. de Ugarte Postigo
(IAA-CSIC/DARK), S. Mottola (DLR), report on behalf of a larger
collaboration:

We observed the field of the GRB141026A (Hagen, et al., GCN 16950) with
the 1.23m CAHA telescope in the I-band filter. Observations started on
Oct. 26.11639 UT (10.75 min post burst). A faint object is detected at
RA=02:56:20.13, DEC=26:55:41.3 (+/-0.6", J2000) with Vega magnitude I~20.6
against the USNO B1.0 catalog. The coordinates of this object are
consistent with the ones reported by Littlejohns et al. (GCN 16592) and
Varela et al. (GCN 16953). No object brighter than I~21.0 (Vega) is
detected consistent with the optical source reported by Perley (GCN
16951).
