We are continuing observations of the Swift GRB 100901A (Immler  et al., GCN 
11159) with the Z-600 telescope of Mt.Terskol observatory in R-filter 
(Andreev  et al., GCN 11166). In a combined image at mid time Sep. 01 (UT) 
20:09 we still detect  bright afterglow (Immler et al., GCN 11159; Guidorzi 
et al., GCN 11160; Ivanov et al., GCN 11161; Klunko et al., GCN 11162).

Preliminary photometry is based on the reference star USNO-B1.0
