report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 200922A
86 s after the BAT trigger (Moss et al., GCN Circ. 28471).
We identify a fading source near the XRT position
(Osborne et al. GCN Circ. 28473) and also at the location of a weak source
in the DSS.  The source position is:

  RA(J2000)  =	19:47:48.76 = 296.95317
  DEC(J2000) = -55:12:16.5  = -55.20457

Which is 3.0 arc-second from the enhanced XRT position. 

Preliminary detections using the UVOT photometric system
(Breeveld et al. 2011, AIP Conf. Proc. 1358, 373) for the early exposures are:

The magnitudes in the table are not corrected for the Galactic extinction
due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.05 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
