(INAF/IASF Bologna) report:

On Sept. 5 we observed the field of GRB 060904b (Grupe et. al.,
GCN 5165) with the 152 cm Cassini Telescope located in Loiano,
equipped with BFOSC (seeing 1".5).
The photometry is based on the SDSS stars (J035252.20  -004344.1,
J035249.70  -004345.8 , also quoted in GCN 5507 by Cool et al.)
and the trasformation derived from Lupton (2005).
For the OT detected by Klotz et al. (GCN 5508) we find the
following magnitudes:
..Mean..UT .......Filter........Exptime (s).......magnitude
Sept...5.111........Rc............900............21.75+/-0.11
Sept...5.123........Rc............900............21.74+/-0.12
Sept...5.145........Rc............900............21.8 +/-0.2
