(IKI)  on behalf of  larger GRB follow up collaboration report:

We observed the field of GRB 110503A  (Stamatikos  et al. GCN  11991) with 
Shajn telescope of CrAO  observatory  on May. 3 starting (UT) 23:56. We took 
several frames with exposure of 60s in R-band. The afterglow (Stamatikos  et 
al. GCN  11991)  is well detected  in each single frame.  A preliminary 
photometry is based on the USNO B1.0 star  1421-0227752  (08:51:10.01 
+52:11:04.75)    assuming R=16.819   (Updike et al. GCN 12001):
