collaboration report:

We began observing Fermi LAT GRB 171010A (Omodei et al. GCN 21985) on 
October 11, from 02:15 to 02:28 UT (7.2 hours since the GRB trigger 
time) with one of the 1-m LCO telescopes in Sutherland in the SDSS-I 
filter. Within the enhanced Swift-XRT circle (D'Ai et al. GCN 21989) we 
clearly detect the optical afterglow (Thorstensen and Halpern, GCN 
21987; Izzo and Malesani, GCN 21988) with the following magnitude:

Mid Time����� Exposure������ Filter������ Magnitude (AB)

as calibrated against nearby Pan-STARRS objects.
