  MASTER II  robotic telescope (MASTER-Net: 
located in Blagoveschensk was pointed to the  GRB121125.36 44 sec after 
GRB time at 2012-11-25 08:33:11.383 UT. On our first (10s exposure) set we 
haven`t found optica
l transient  within SWIFT error-box (Barlow et al., GCN Circ 13993).
Unfortunately notice alert have come immodiatly after sunset when 
telescope prepearing
calibration images.

  So  5-sigma upper limit of the first images has been about 13.8 mag that 
is not very good.
We see OT (Barlow et al., GCN Circ 13993) on UVOT position on the next 
images with 14.5 mag limit (UT_start = 2012-11-25 08:34:34, 127 
s after trigger time, exp_time = 30s).

  We note that there is 16.5 mag star 9 arcsec from UVOT OT coordinates.
The observations is continuated.
