(all XAO) report:

We observed the field of GRB 160525B (Krimm et al., GCN 19459) using the 
1m telescope located at Nanshan, Xinjiang, China. We obtained 5x300s 
R-band frames, starting at 15:26:24 UT on 2016-05-25, i.e., 6.02 hr 
after the burst.

No optical source is detected at the XRT position (Beardmore et al., GCN 
19463) in the stacked image, down to a limiting magnitude of m(R)>21.5, 
calibrated with the nearby SDSS field.
