U.Quadri, L.Strabla and A.Quadri report:

We imaged the field of GRB 190106A detected by SWIFT(trigger 882252)
with the robotic telescope of (IAU station 565) Bassano Bresciano 
Observatory, Italy. Member of: 
AAVSO - American Association of Variable Star Observers.
ISSP - Italian Supernovae Search Project.
UAI/SSV - Unione Astrofili Italiani/sezione stelle variabili.

The observations started 6.16 hour after the GRB trigger,  
with our baker-Schmidt telescope D=250 mm F/D=3.

Weather conditions were good.

We co-added 2 series of 15 exposures of 60 sec each.

Start T0+      End T0+      Vlim
6.16 hour   6.72 hour       19.5

We detect the afterglow in the error box of the XRTcandidate.

at the following position (+/- 2 arcsec):

RA (J2000.0) =  01h 59m 31.50s
DEC(J2000.0) = +23�� 50' 44.7"

The results of our photometry are:

------------------------------------    
     JD          V mag       Cat
------------------------------------
2458490.33004   19.130 V    UCAC4   
2458490.34077   19.344 V    UCAC4   
------------------------------------
 
Magnitudes were estimated with the UCAC4 cat. and 
are not corrected for galactic dust extinction.
