MASTER-SAAO  robotic telescope (MASTER-Net: located 
in SAAO was starting survey on the LAT  GRB170510.22 error-box (Bissaldi et 
al., GCN #21080)   22480 sec after notice time and 41530 sec after trigger time 
at 2017-05-10 16:44:36 UT. The 5-sigma upper limit on our first (180s exposure) 
set is about 18.9 mag

  We marginaly see   optical candidate (Cucchiara  et al. GCN 21087) at XRT 
(Evans  et al. GCN #21082, Melandri et al. GCN #21086)  position with 
unfiltered mag ~ 19  m .

Ra, Dec = 10 40 36.76 -39 12 43.8 (+/-1 arcsec)

We did not see object 2.5 hours late with limit 19.5 .

So X-ray Source 1 (Melandri et al. GCN #21086) is possible OT.
