Pozanenko (IKI)   report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of the Swift  GRB 171123A   (Evans et al.,
GCN  22148) with Zeiss-1000 1-m telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical 
Observatory starting on Nov., 23 (UT) 23:31:56.  We took several images 
in R-filter.  Within enhanced XRT error circle  (Goad et al., GCN 22150) 
we do not detect  any  object.  Preliminary  photometry of the afterglow 
is following

Date       UT start  t-T0    Filter Exp.   OT     Err. UL
                      (mid, days)     (s)             (3 sigma)

2017-11-23 23:31:56  0.41294  R    38*120  n/d    n/d  22.2

Photometry is based on nearby USNO-B1.0 stars, R2 magnitude.
