GRB follow-up  collaboration:

We observed the field of the Swift  GRB 180111A (Lien et al., GCN 22318) 
with AS-32 (0.7m) telescope of Abastumani Observatory starting on Jan., 11 
(UT)  23:53:51. We obtained several unfiltered images of the field.   Within 
enhanced XRT error circle  (Evans et al., GCN   22319) we detected the 
afterglow (Lien et al., GCN  22318; Xin et al., 22320; GCN  Butler  et al., 
GCN  22323; Gropp  et al., GCN   22327).
Preliminary photometry of the afterglow is following
