 We have observed the field covering the error circle of
GRB 090728 (Swift trigger 358574, GCN 9725, V. Mangano et al.) 
with the unfiltered CCD camera on the 30-cm telescope 
at University of Miyazaki.
The observation was started 14:46:53 UT, about 23 sec
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. 
(Swift trigger 358574, GCN 9725, V. Mangano et al.) 

the upper limits are as follows:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Start(UT)   End(UT)    Num. of frames    Limit (mag.)
--------------------------------------------------------------
14:59:59	15:00:29          1            13.8
14:46:53	15:00:29         11            15.4
