We observed the field of the GRB 170115A (Page et al., GCN Circ. 20462) 
with AS-32 (0.7m) telescope of Abastumani Observatory  on Jan., 16 (UT) 
14:57:24. We obtained several unfiltered images of the field. No source 
is found within enhanced XRT position (Osborne et al. GCN Circ. 20465).
Preliminary photometry  of the field is following
