(IKI) report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 150607A (Swift trigger 642620, D'Elia et 
al., GCN 17904) with the AS-32 (0.7m) telescope of Abastumani 
Observatory (AAO) starting on June, 07 17:54:22, and with AZT-8 
telescope of CrAO starting on June, 07 19:43:21.  The afterglow of GRB 
150607A (Kruehler et al., GCN 17908; Hagen et al., GCN 17909) is clearly 
detected in early observation in AAO. Preliminary photometry is following.
