a large collaboration report:

Using a 1-m LCOGTN telescope in Cerro Tololo (Chile),
we began observing GRB 150727A (Cenko et al. GCN 18076;
Younes et al. GCN 18081) on July 28 01:23:01 UT
(~6.3 hours after the burst trigger) with r' and i' filters.

We did not detect the UVOT counterpart (Cenko et al. 2015, GCN 18076)
down to the following limit:

Mid time from  Total Exp   Filter    Magnitude
trigger (hr)   (s)
6.71           120x10        r'        > 18.9
6.76           120x9         i'        > 16.5

Values have been calibrated against nearby USNOB-1 stars
(R2 and I).
