A. de Ugarte Postigo (IAA-CSIC, DARK/NBI), L. Izzo (IAA-CSIC), 
D.A. Kann (TLS Tautenburg), V. Casanova (IAA-CSIC) report on 
behalf of a larger collaboration:

We have observed the field of GRB 160910A (Veres et al. GCN 19901, 
Racusin et al. GCN 19902, D���A�� et al. GCN 19904) with the 1.5m 
OSN telescope in Granada (Spain). The observation consisted of I-band 
imaging and started at 20:15:07 (26.92 hr after the burst). On the first 300 s
image we detect an object within the XRT error box at I(AB) ~ 19.3 mag, 
not present in the SDSS images, which we identify as the counterpart of 
GRB 160910A

We encourage further follow-up and spectroscopy of this bright afterglow.
