We observed GRB 100820A (Troja et al. GCN 12288) with i,z,and 
Y-filters using CQUEAN camera (the Camera for QUasars in the Early uNiverse) 
on the 2.1m telescope at the McDonald observatory. The observation 
started at 2010 August 21, 05:12:48 UT, about 11.5 hrs after the 
BAT trigger.

In a stacked i-band image (3 x 300 sec), we identify a faint object
within the error circle of the enhanced XRT position (Beardmore et al.
GCN 12291).

The position of the i-band source is

  with a positional error of ~0.5".

We are carrying our further observations to examine variability 
of the source.
