The field of the long GRB 080414 detected by INTEGRAL (Mereghetti et al.,
GCN 7618) was observed with Russian-Turkish 1.5-m telescope (RTT150,
Bakirlitepe, TUBITAK National Observatory, Turkey), under not optimal
conditions. We made 8x100s images in R band centered at 23:46 UT,
i.e. approximately 1.21 hours after the burst. We detect no new objects as
compared to DSS-II red plate with magnitude brighter than R=~20.
