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

We observed the field of Swift GRB 151205A (Cummings et al., GCN 18657)
with ORI-40 telescope of Khureltogot observatory starting on  Dec., 5 
(UT) 20:49:25, i.e. ~6 hours after the burst trigger.  We do not detect 
any object within enhanced XRT error circle  (Osborne et al., GCN 18658).
Photometry of the field is following

Date UT start       t-T0   Filter Exp.  Upper_Limit (3sigma)
                     (mid, days)   (s)

2015-12-05 20:49:25 0.24451 none  90*60 21.3

Photometry is based on nearby SDSS stars,
R magnitude deduced from Lupton's transformations.
