The 25cm robotic telescope FRAM-ORM at La Palma (Spain)
reacted robotically to the alert of GRB201024A (Marshall
et al GCNC 28761), obtaining a series of 20 s unfiltered
images starting at 02:49:34.4 UT, i.e. 35.3s post trigger.

We clearly detect the source reported by other telescopes
(Lipunov et al. GCN 28760, Fernandez-Garcia et al. GCN 28763,
de Ugarte Postigo et al GCN 28764 and others). As reported
before, the brightness of the object reaches a maximum of
about R(Vega) = 14.0 and then decays relatively steeply with a
power law index alpha = ~1.5.
