  MASTER II  robotic telescope (MASTER-Net: located 
near Kislovdsk  was pointed to the Trigger 506913: Swift J1922.7-1716 
(Barthelmy et al., GCN Circ 12522)  28 s  after  notice time  and 98 sec after 
Trigger time.
Unfortunately our first   10s exposure set in two polarizations are saturated 
by evening sky light.

The preliminary photometry of the first unsaturated images gives:

               UT        T-T_trig    mag

Observations and data reduction are continuated.
