MASTER II  robotic telescope (MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru) 
located in Kislovodsk was pointed to the  GRB130122A  28 sec s after 
notice time and 91 sec after GRB time at 2013-01-22 23:45:40 UT in two 
polarizations.
The weather conditions were not very good and continuosly deteriorated. 
On our first (20s exposure) double set we marginally find an optical 
transient at the Swift UVOT position (Lien et al., GCN 14140) with 
unfiltered magnitude 16.8+-0.3 (m = 0.8R + 0.2B from USNO-B).
