We have observed the field of GRB130418A (de Pasquale et al. 2013; GCN
Circ. 14377) with 1.23m CAHA telescope equipped with PLANETCAM. The
observations started on 19:31 UT with the I-band filter. The optical
afterglow reported by de Pasquale et al. (GCN Circ. 14377) is well
detected with an approximate magnitue of I~15.6.
