The robotic 60-cm REM telescope located at La Silla (Chile) observed
automatically the field of the GRB 080710 (Sbarufattion et al. GCN 7957,
7958) on July 10 starting at 07:14:36 UT.
We can detect in optical and NIR bands the object reported by Li et al.
(GCN 7959). The object is variable and we measure a brightening from H ~
15.0 to H ~14.3 between two epochs of observations (arount 07:21 and
08:47 UT, respectively). Further analysis is ongoing.
