"We observed the field of GRB 120116A (Melandri et al., GCNC 12834) with the 82cm IAC80 telescope at the Observatorio del Teide, Tenerife, Spain. The observations were carried in the I-band on Jan 16.83154 -- 16.91640 UT (1.85-3.89 hours post burst) with a	total exposure time of 22x300s. A preliminary analysis of the combined image shows no object brighter than I~21.8 inside the XRT error circle."
