larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB GRB 180618A (LaPorte et al., GCN 22790) 
with Zeiss-1000 1-m telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical Observatory 
starting on June 18 (UT) 15:39:19. We obtained several images in 
R-filter.  The optical afterglow (LaPorte et al., GCN 22790; Guidorzi et 
al., GCN 22792; Tyurina et al., GCN 22797)  is not detected in a stacked 
image. Preliminary photometry of the field is following.
