"We observed the field of GRB 111022B (Holland et al., GCN
12472) with 0.5m robotic telescope D50 in Ondrejov observatory
(Czech Republic). The observation started at 23:55:06 UT on
October 22, 2011, approx. 6.5 hours after the Swift trigger.

We report no detection of the optical counterpart on the
unfiltered images within the error circle given by SWIFT-XRT
(Beardmore et al., GCN 12478). The limiting magnitude of about
R>20.0 mag in R-band was estimated using nearby sources from
GSC2.2 catalogue."
