MASTER II  robotic telescope (MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru) 
located in Tunka was pointed to the  GRB140129B  106 sec after 
trigger time at 2014-01-29 12h 52m 55 s UT (expo time = 20 sec). 
On our first (20s exposure) set we  found optical transient 
at the  SWIFT optical transient position. The unfiltered magnitude is 
about ~ 14m.
