(IKI) report:

We have observed the  GRB030329 (HETE #2652) and OT  of the GRB found  by
B.A. Peterson and P.A. Price (GCN 1985) with Cassegrain 38-cm telescope of
CrAO.
Several 180 sec. exposures of  R (Johnson) filter were obtained.
The photometry of the OT in  respect to the star of USNO �2.0 - 1050-6351075
(the star A in the figure in
http://grb.rssi.ru/GRB030329/030329_030329_at64.gif) is following:

Star A (USNO �2.0 - 1050-6351075)
RA =10 44 54.49
DEC=+21 34 29.8
R=14.00  B=14.90

JD Hel = 52728.2293  delR=0.17
                         .2318  delR=0.26
                         .2349   delR=0.23
                         .2397   delR=0.27
