collaboration report:

We observed Swift GRB 170113A (Evans et al. GCN 20446) on January 13, 
from 10:53:32 UT (50 minutes since the GRB) with 1-m LCO telescope units 
in Sutherland with SDSS r and i filters. We clearly detect the 
Swift-UVOT optical counterpart with the following values:

Mid Time      Exposure       Filter       Magnitude (AB)
(hours)           (s)
0.89             5x60         SDSS-R      19.06 +- 0.11
0.89             5x60         SDSS-I      18.84 +- 0.08

as calibrated against nearby USNO-UCAC4 sources.
