We observed the field of the GRB 221028A (Lien et al., GCN Circ. 32874)
with the COATLI 50-cm telescope and HUITZI f/8 imager at the Observatorio
Astron��mico Nacional on the Sierra de San Pedro M��rtir ( from 2022-10-29 02:13 UTC to 08:03 UTC
(13.5 to 19.3 hours after the trigger), obtaining a total of 244 minutes of
exposure in the r filter.

At the position of the XRT afterglow (Lien et al., GCN Circ. 32874), we do
not detect a source to the following 3-sigma upper limit:

r > 23.4

Our photometry is calibrated against the Pan-STARRS1 catalog, is on an
approximate AB system, and is not corrected for Galactic extinction in the
direction of the GRB.

We thank the COATLI/HUITZI technical team and the staff of the Observatorio
Astron��mico Nacional.
