We found additional image in MASTER-IAC DataBase with more early time.
So the begining of our GCN Circular #21391 must be readed 
as:

MASTER II  robotic telescope (MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru) 
located in IAC was pointed to the  GRB170728B 19 sec after notice time 
and 30 sec after trigger time at 2017-07-28 23:03:49 UT. On our first (10s 
exposure)  image we found optical transient  within SWIFT 
error-box (Cenko et al., GCN Circ. #21371).
The 5-sigma upper limit has been about 16.6 mag
