MASTER-IAC, MASTER-Kislovodsk and MASTER-SAAO was pointed to the FERMI GBM GRB151107B (Stanbro, Meegan, GCN #18570 ) at 2015-11-07 20:25:52(/59s/58s) UT (R.Rebolo et al., GCN #18576 ).

There were the prompt pointing observations because duration of the GRB was ~140s .

After 5 minutes of the alert observations of the error-box center, MASTER telescopes in IAC and Kislovodsk started the inspect survey inside large Fermi error box (ra=00 42 28 dec=+48 48 58 r=4.533300) obtained by GCN socket.

As a result, we cover more than 98% of 1 sigma+systematic and 85% of 3-sigma + systematic of the FERMI GBM final error box (Stanbro et. al. GCN 18570) with upper limit up to 19 mag during this night.

MASTER OT J015539.85+485955.6 was the only transient, detected by MASTER automatically software in this field (Shumkov et al., ATEL #8262) at the position(RA, Dec) = 01h 55m 39.85s +48d 59m 55.6s (m_OT=15.2, 2015-11-07.99775 UT), that is in 9.4"E,7.9"N from PGC212862(17.5m) and in 0.5" from USNO B1 star(GSC B=20.5m).

This OT was observed by Liverpool Telescope at La Palma (SPRAT spectrograph, Piascik and Steele, ATel #8265 ). There was a broad continuum, consistent with that expected from a dwarf nova in outburst.

This OT was independently detected by ASAS (ASASSN-15sr, Holoin et al., ATEL #8260) and our today imaging (Kislovodsk, 2015-11-10 17:16:26.513UT, m_OT=15.5+-0.1) shows that OT doesn't fade essentially with respect to discovery magnitude contraverse to GRB optical afterglow .
