(IKI) report on behalf of IKI GRB FuN collaboration:

We continue observations the  optical afterglow (Lipunov et al., GCN 
24680, 24693 and also e.g. Kann et al., GCN 24684; Melandri et al., GCN 
24689; Heintz et al., GCN 24686; Lzzo et al., GCN  24687; Xin et al., 
GCN   24688; Watson et al., GCN  24690; Xin et al., GCN 24697)  of the 
Fermi GRB 190530A (Fermi GBM Team, GCN  24676; Longo et al., GCN 
24679) with   AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy) and AS-32 
(0.7m) telescope of Abastumani Observatory. The afterglow is clearly 
visible in stacked images. Preliminary photometry of the afterglow is

The photometry might be influenced by nearby optical source presented in 
    Pan-STARRS DR1 catalog (ID 150571205309266249) mentioned in (Lipunov 
et al., GCN 24680).
