MASTER  robotic system (
responded to GRB060926 (Holland  et al., GCN Circ 5612).
The first image was started at 2006-09-26 16:49:57 UT, 76 s  after the GRB
time. The unfiltered image is calibrated relative to USNO A2.0 (0.8 R + 0.2 B).
We see OT (Holland  et al., GCN Circ 5612).
Our results:

   T-T_grb             exp_time           m (close to R)    S/N

  76 s - 106 s          30 s                   >17           5
  76 s - 360 s         5x30 s                  18+-0.3
  76 s - 820 s        10x30 s                  18.5+-0.3

Reduction is continued.
