We observed the ZTF20acozryr/AT2020yxz (Coughlin et al., GCN  28841) 
with AZT-20 telescope of Assy-Turgen observatory starting on  Nov. 06 
(UT) 19:10:28  in  r'-filter.  We detect the optical transient (Coughlin 
et al., GCN  28841; Coughlin et al., GCN  28841; Xu  et al., GCN 28846; 
Xu  et al., GCN 28854; Mao et al., GCN  28861; ) which can be afterglow 
of GRB 201103B (Svinkin et al., GCN 28844; Evans  et al., GCN 28858).

Preliminary photometry of the afterglow is following
