We imaged the field of GRB 230805B detected by SWIFT(trigger 1183217)
with the robotic telescope of (IAU station 565) Bassano Bresciano 
Observatory, Italy. Member of:

The observations started 8.74 hour after the GRB trigger, At the end of twilight 
with our Newton telescope D=250 mm F/D=4.8.

Weather conditions were good.

We co-added 4 series of 20 exposures of 60 sec each.
