We observed GRB 120327A (Sbarufatti et al., GCN 13123) in
g,r,i,z,Y filters using CQUEAN camera on the 2.1m Otto-Struve
telescope at McDonald Observatory, Texas, US.

The observation started at 2012-03-27 11:00:08 UT,
or about 8 hours after the BAT alert.
In all of the g,r,i,z,Y-band images taken with 300 sec
exposure each, we identify the afterglow (r ~ 20 AB mag)
which was reported earlier by several groups

Soulier et al. GCN 13126, LaCluyze et al. GCN 13127,
