MASTER II  robotic telescope (MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru) 
located in Tunka was starting inspection on the Swift  GRB 170626A 
error-box (ra=11 01 34 dec=+56 28 36 r=0.05)  22799 sec after notice time and 24464 
sec after trigger time at 2017-06-26 16:45:56 UT. The 5-sigma upper limit 
on our added image (3x180s exposure)  set is about 19.8  mag .

We see OT with unfiltered magnitude 19.8 +0.2/-0.3 mag at Moskvitin et 
al. (GCN #21268) position (see also A. de Ugarte Postigo et al.,GCN
