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

We observed the field of GRB 150910A (Pagani et al., GCN  18264)  with 
Zeiss-1000 (East) 1-m telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical Observatory on 
Sep. 10 (UT) 18:02:59 -- 20:37:38.  We obtained several images in R and 
B filters.  In both filters the afterglow  (Pagani et al., GCN 18264; 
Zheng & Filippenko, GCN 18265) is clearly visible. Within 2.5 hours of 
observations we do not detect significant fading of the afterglow. The 
photometry of combined images are following

2015-09-10 18:02:59    0.42436  B       12*300   20.85 +/- 0.08

The photometry is based on nearby SDSS stars

Our photometry in R-filter is in agreement with  in subsequent 
observations (Moskvitin & Goranskij, GCN 18275).
