We observed the field of the Swift  GRB 170604A (Page et al., GCN 21191) 
  with AS-32 (0.7m) telescope of Abastumani Observatory starting on 
June, 04 (UT)  23:52:07. We obtained several unfiltered images of the 
field.   Within enhanced XRT error circle  (Page et al., GCN   21196) we 
detected the afterglow (Izzo et al, GCN 21192; Izzo et al, GCN 21197; 
Schady, , GCN 21200). Preliminary photometry of the afterglow is following
