MASTER II  robotic telescope (MASTER-Net: 
located in IAC  was pointed to the  GRB150912A 33865 sec (9.4 h) after 
trigger time at 2015-09-12 20:01:55 UT directly after the sunset. On our 
first single and coadd sets we haven`t found optical transient  within IPN 
error-box (Mereghetti et. al GCN 18291).
The 5-sigma upper limit has been about 19.2 on single (180 sec) and ~ 20.3 
at coadd (10x180 sec) images.
