We observed the field of GRB 151212A detected by MAXI (Nakahira et al., GCN Circ. 18685) 
with the iTelescope.Net ( T18 (Plane Wave CDK) telescope located 
at the AstroCamp Observatory (Nerpio, Spain).  20 images of 60 sec exposures were taken 
in the Red filter starting from December 12 22:43:00 (UT) about 8.7 hours after the trigger 
and stopped on December 12 23:17:03 (UT).  We do not detect the optical afterglow both in the 
individual images and the stacked image at the X-ray afterglow position 
(Roegiers et al., GCN Circ. 18687).  The estimated five sigma upper limit of the combined 
image (total exposure of 1200 sec) is ~17.0 using the USNO-B1 catalog.
