The robotic 60-cm REM telescope located at La Silla (Chile) observed 
automatically the field of the GRB 080725 (Krimm et al. GCN 8014) on 
July 25 starting at 10:34:23 UT (about 8 minutes after the burst, 23 
second after the trigger). Observations were carried out during twilight 
and at high airmass. We do not identify any obvious afterglow candidate 
down to R > 16.1 and H > 14.5 (3sigma c.l.) inside the BAT error box.
