of larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 141028A (Bissaldi et al., GCN 16969)
with  Zeiss-1000 (East) 1-m telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical
Observatory on Oct., 29  starting on (UT) 15:58:47.  We obtained several 
images in R-filter. In a combined image  we clearly  detect optical 
afterglow (Gorbovskoy et al., GCN 16972; Graham et al., GCN 16977). 
Details of the photometry are following:
