(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. 11 and Sep. 12.  We obtained several images in R filter.  The 
afterglow  (Pagani et al., GCN 18264; Zheng & Filippenko, GCN 18265) is 
clearly visible in a combined image on Sep. 11 and on Sep. 12 we 
obtained upper limit.  The photometry of the combined images are following
