In the framework of the Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841), we have spectroscopically observed the OT of GRB150413A detected by MASTER (Atel #7381) with the Asiago 1.82 m Copernico Telescope (+AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.4 nm), on 20150413.87 UT, that is about 7.0h after detection.
The spectrum of the optical transient shows an almost flat continuum with a saturated, broad absorption centered at 5025 A. If this absorption is identified with Lyman alpha corresponds to a redshift z=3.17.
Optical photometry has also been obtained, providing the following sloan filter magnitudes:
r=18.3 (13.900 UT), i=17.9 (13.901 UT) and g = 19.3 (13.903 UT).
