We observed the field of GRB 161219B (Swift trigger 727541; D'Ai,GCN 20296)
with AZT-33IK (Mondy), ZTSh (CrAO), AS-32 (AbAO) and Zeiss-1000 (SAO RAS)
telescopes. We obtained unfiltered images (AbAO) and images in R-filter
(other observatories). The optical source associated with the afterglow
(D'Ai et al., GCN 20296; Kruehler et al., GCN 20299; Guidorzi et al., GCN
20300; Martin-Carrillo et al., GCN 20305) and SN2016jca (de Ugarte Postigo
et al., GCN 20342; Chen et al., GCN 20380) is clearly visible in all our
Preliminary light curve of the afterglow and SN2016jca can be found at
Photometry is based on nearby USNO-B1.0 stars (R2) common for all images.
Late time photometry is contaminated by Pan-STARRS galaxy previously
reported by Kruehler et al. (GCN 20299), and also presented in USNO-B1.0.
Apparent maximum brightness of the SN2016jca was observed at about 11 days
after burst onset (R = 19.2 at 2016-12-30 (UT) 20:04:59) and actual SN peak
could be slighter later, between 11 and 14 days after burst.
