We have observed the field covering the error circle of
GRB 090812 (Swift trigger 359711, GCN 9768, M. Stamatikos et al.)
with the unfiltered CCD camera on the 30-cm telescope 
at University of Miyazaki.
The observation was started 12:30:59 UT, about 6.5 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.
