We have observed the field covering the error circle of
GRB09042 (Swift trigger 350854, GCN 9281, T. N. Ukwatta et al.)
with the unfiltered CCD camera on the 30-cm telescope
at University of Miyazaki.
The observation was started 11:29:13 UT, about 6.0 hr
after the Swift trigger time.

We have compared our data of 30 sec exposures
with the USNO-A2.0 catalog,
There is no new source at the reported position.
(GCN 9281, T. N. Ukwatta et al. GCN 9288, A.P. Beardmore et al.
