collaboration report:

We observed Swift GRB 170205A (Troja et al. GCN 20603) on February 05, 
from 14:40 UT (2.0 hours since the GRB) with the 2-m LCO FTN in Hawaii 
with SDSS r and i filters. We detect the optical afterglow at the 
Swift-UVOT position with the following values:

Mid Time      Exposure       Filter       Magnitude (AB)
(hours)           (s)
2.0             2x120         SDSS-R        20.3 +- 0.1
2.1             2x120         SDSS-I        20.0 +- 0.1

as calibrated against nearby SDSS sources.
