A. S. Moskvitin and O. I. Spiridonova (SAO RAS), report on behalf of
the GRB follow-up team.

We observed the field of GRB 230812B (Lesage et al., GCN 34387;

Pyshna et al., GCN 34425) with the 1-m telescope of SAO RAS Zeiss-1000
equipped with the CCD photometer. We obtained 5 x 300 sec. images in
Rc band on August 14, 19:51:04--20:21:03 UT

The OT is clearly detected in our stacked frame with the brightness of
R = 21.20 +/- 0.09 (t_mid - t0 = 2.0471 days).

This preliminary photometry is based on the nearby SDSS stars;
magnitudes are converted using Lupton (2005) equations.
