C. Guidorzi (U. Ferrara) on behalf of a large collaboration reports:

The 2-m Faulkes Telescope North automatically began observing GRB
131002A on October 02 2013 at 06:57:26 UT (~3.1 min after the burst 
trigger).

Within the XRT error circle  we find a fading uncatalogued object at
coordinates

RA(2000.0)=   16:52:52.86
Dec(2000.0)=  +82:03:16.4  (error 0.5")

with R=15.2 +- 0.2 mag, calibrated against nearby USNOB-1 stars.
