report on behalf of IKI-GRB-FuN:

We observed the field of GRB 210610A (Page et al., GCN  30160) with 
AZT-22 telescope of Maidanak Observatory and AS-32 telescope of 
Abastumani observatory (AbAO). The optical afterglow (Page et al., GCN 
30160; Hosokawa et al., GCN 30161; Xu et a., GCN 30162; Kumar et al., 
GCN 30163; Lipunov et al., GCN 30166; de Wet et al., GCN 30168; Hosokawa 
et al., GCN 30169; Sun et al., GCN 30185; Watson et al., GCN 30191; 
Zheng et al., GCN 30203; Kann et al., GCN 30211; Belkin et al., GCN 
30214; Moskvitin et al., GCN 30229; Kann et al., GCN 30232; Siegel et 
al., GCN 30246) is clearly detected in the stacked images. Preliminary 
photometry of the afterglow is following.

Photometry is based on the SDSS-DR12 nearby stars (Lupton transformations).
SDSS-DR12_id RA DEC R(Lupton)

Using our data in the R filter, it was found that the light curve can be 
described by a broken power-law with power law indices of -0.82 and 
-1.39. The break time is 0.23+/-0.17 days. These values are consistent 
with the result reported by Kann et al. (GCN 30211).
