We observed the field of GRB 141026A (Hagen et al., GCN 16950)

The observations were started at 20:09:49 UT (in 17.55 hours
after the trigger), ended at 03:32:34. We obtained 61 x 300 sec.
images in the Rc filter.

The object mentioned by Littlejohns et al. (GCN 16592, GCN 16963),
Varela et al. (GCN 16953), Gorosabel et al. (GCN 16954),
