follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 180706A  (Stamatikos et al., GCN 22909) 
with Zeiss-1000 telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical Observatory starting 
on July 06 (UT) 16:18:35. We obtained several images in R-filter.  The 
optical afterglow (Stamatikos et al., GCN 22909;  Watson et al., GCN 
22910)  is clearly detected in a combined image.  Preliminary photometry 
of the afterglow is following.
