Veli-Pekka Hentunen, Markku Nissinen and Tuomo Salmi (Taurus Hill
Observatory, Varkaus, Finland) report:

We have detected GRB 150413A optical afterglow at iTelescope
observatory T7 and T18 (AstroCamp Observatory, Nerpio, Spain)
using T7 0.43-m/6.8  and T18 0.32-m/8.0 astrographs. The observations
were started at 2015-04-13 20:29:13 (UT) and stopped at 23:54:26
(UT). Fifteen unfiltered images and four photometric R filter images with
120 sec exposure time were made.

The afterglow was detected at the following position RA 21:41:41.88
and DEC +71:50:27.9.

The following magnitude were obtained from the observations using
USNO-B1.0 1618-0098208 (R1=14.38) as a comparison star:
