Pankov (HSE), V. Kim (FAP) report on behalf of GRB-IKI-FuN:

We continue observations of GRB 210822A (Page et al., GCN  30677;  Wang 
et al., GCN 30678; Prasad  et al., GCN  30693; Frederiks et al., GCN 
30694) with Zeiss-1000 telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical Observatory. 
on Aug. 22 (UT) 15:48:55 -- 18:48:47. We obtained series  in R-filter 
starting on  2021-08-24 (UT) 16:47:35.

The optical afterglow (Page et al., GCN  30677; Zheng et al., GCN 30679; 
Butler et al., GCN 30680; Fu et al., GCN 30684; Zhu  et al., GCN 30692; 
Romanov  et al., GCN 30701; Guelbenzu et al., GCN 30703; Siegel et al., 
GCN 30710; Belkin  et al., GCN 30712) at the redshift of z = 1.736 (Zhu 
  et al., GCN 30692) is detected in stacked image. Preliminary 
photometry of the afterglow in a stacked image is following.
