E. Mazaeva (IKI),  A. Volnova (IKI), A. Khruslov (INASAN), A. Kusakin 
(Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute), A. Pozanenko (IKI) report on behalf 
of larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of the GRB 141031B (Gompertz et al., GCN 16998)
with  Zeiss-1000 (East) 1m telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical
Observatory on Oct., 31  starting on (UT) 15:39:02.  Within enhanced XRT 
error circle (Goad et al., GCN 17009)  we do not detect any object 
either in a single image (Mazaeva et al., GCN 17007) or   in combined 
image of a total exposure of 4800 s.
Details of the photometry are following:
