We observed Fermi-LAT detected localization area of GRB 200524A (Dirirsa 
et al., GCN 27797; see also Pookalil et al., GCN 27809; Capalbi  et al., 
GCN 27811; Gupta et al., GCN 27818) with   Kitab-ISON RC-36  telescope 
starting on 2020-05-24 (UT) 19:07:41. In a stacked image in Clear filter 
(CR) we marginally detected optical afterglow discovered by ZTF (Ho et 
al., GCN 27799) and confirmed by several observations (Kumar et al. GCN 
27800; (Kumar et al., GCN 27800; Rumyantsev et al., GCN 27802; Sanwal et 
al., GCN 27803; Perley et al., GCN 27805; Kumar et al., GCN 27806; de 
Ugarte Postigo et al., GCN 27807; Blazek et al., GCN 27810; Ogawa et 
al., GCN 27813; Izzo, GCN 27817). Preliminary photometry is following
