 We observed the field of Swift GRB 140907A (Krimm et al., GCN#16788) with
the 1.0 meter T100 telescope (Bakirlitepe, TUBITAK National Observatory,
Turkey), starting September, 7, 23:54:47 UT (~ 7.794 hours after the
trigger). Observations were carried out in the R filter. The afterglow is
clearly detected in 300 s in the R band images.

Using USNO-B1 star USNO-B1 1366-0072923 (R.A.=48.155, Dec=+46.614) in the
field, the magnitude of the OT was estimated as follows;

 We are grateful to TUBITAK National Observatory for prompt scheduling the
observations and technical support.
