(IKI) report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 150910A (Pagani et al., GCN  18264)  with 
Zeiss-1000 (East) 1-m telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical Observatory on 
Sep. 11 and Sep. 12.  We obtained several images in R filter.  The 
afterglow  (Pagani et al., GCN 18264; Zheng & Filippenko, GCN 18265) is 
clearly visible in a combined image on Sep. 11 and on Sep. 12 we 
obtained upper limit.  The photometry of the combined images are following

The photometry is based on SDSS stars used in GCN 18281 (Mazaeva et al.)
