We observed the field of GRB 171205A (D'Elia et al., GCN 22177)   with 
RC-1000 1m telescope of CHILESCOPE observatory. The observations carried 
out in a clear filter starting on Dec. 06 (UT) 06:46:47. The afterglow 
of GRB 171205A (e.g.  Osborne et al., GCN 22179;  Izzo et al., GCN 
22180; Emery et al., GCN 22181) is clearly detected.  Preliminary 
photometry is following.
