MASTER-ICATE robotic very wide field cameras (FOV=2x384 square degrees,
D=72mm, f/1.2, 1 pix = 22 arcsec, located
in Argentina (Observatorio Astronomico Felix Aguilar, were pointed to the
GRB 130425A (von Kienlin, GCN 14442, K. Hurley et. al GCN 14446, S. 
Golenetskii et. al 14447) 40 sec after FERMI trigger Time  at 2013-04-25 
07:52:08 UT. We cover full IPN error box (K. Hurley et. al GCN 14446).

We haven't found optical transient within IPN error box on our 5-s
frames and on the coadded image made of 60 frames and total exposure of 
300 seconds. The 3-sigma upper limit (with the reference to V magnitudes 
from Tycho-2 catalog) has been about 11.0 mag on single images and 13.0 
mag on coadded image.

The reduction of the whole data set is continuing.
