larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 150120B  (D'Elia et al., GCN 17314) with 
AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy) Jan., 20  starting on 
(UT) 11:42:02. We obtained 65 images in R-filter of 120 s exposure. In 
two combined images within  enhanced Swift-XRT error circle (Goad
et al., GCN 17320) we clearly  detect optical  afterglow (Perley et al. 
GCN 17315, Guidorzi et al. GCN 17316). Photometry of the afterglow is
