report on behalf of larger GRB IKI FuN collaboration:

We observed the the field of GRB 200829A (Siegel et al., GCN 28307; Ursi
et al., GCN 28314; Ridnaia et al., GCN 28323; Lesage & Meegan, GCN
28326)  with Zeiss-1000 telescope of TShAO observatory, RC-36 telescope 
of Kitab observatory, Zeiss-1000 telescope of Koshka Observatory, AZT-11 
telescope of CrAO observatory, and AS-23 telescope of AbAO observatory. 
The optical afterglow (Siegel et al., GCN 28307, Pozanenko et al., GCN 
28308; Kuin & Siegel, GCN 28311; Lipunov et al., GCN 28315; Vinko et 
al., GCN 28316; Hentunen et al., GCN 28318; Moskvitin et al., GCNs 
28322, 28328, Zhu et al., GCNs 28324,  28330; Pankov et al., GCN 28329; 
Izzo, GCN 28331; Volnova et al., GCN  28333)  is detected on first two 
days   after GRB trigger. Preliminary light curve of the afterglow in 
R-filter can be found at

One can tentatively assume a jet break in the light curve at ~0.33 days.

(The photometry is based on nearby USNO-B1.0 stars identical for all
