One of the LCO 1-m telescope units in Siding Springs began observing 
Swift GRB 161117B (Troja et al., GCN 20182) in the SDSS r filter on 
November 17, 10:28:49 UT (39 minutes since the GRB trigger time). We do 
not find any object within the XRT error circle down to the following limit:

Mid time from GRB     Exposure     Filter       Magnitude
(min)                  (s)
45                    5x120        SDSS-R       > 21.2

Calibration is done against nearby USNOB-1 stars.
