U.Quadri and  L.Strabla (Bassano Bresciano Astronomical Observatory),

Members of: 
AAVSO - American Association of Variable Star Observers.
UAI/SSV - Unione Astrofili Italiani/sezione stelle variabili-GRB.
GAC - Gruppo Astrofili Cremonesi.

In a large collaboration with:
M.G. Dainotti (National Astronomical Observatory of Japan), 
Y. Niino (Tokyo University, Institute of Astronomy), 
K. Kalinowski (Aarhus University, Department of Physics and Astronomy),
B. De Simone (Universita' degli Studi Di Salerno)

We re-observed the field of GRB 230812B (Lesage et al., GCN 34387;
Scotton et al., GCN 34392; Page, GCN 34394; Zheng & Filippenko, GCN

Pyshna et al., GCN 34425) with our 0.25-m Newton robotic telescope.

We coadded 155 x 60 sec. unfiltered images on August 14 2023, 
from 19:46:11 to 22:32:27 UT

We confirm a fading afterglow at the following coordinates +/- 0.2 arcsec:

RA (J2000.0) =  16h 36m 31.51s
DEC(J2000.0) = +47d 51p 32.2s

The results of OT photometry are:

      JD         mag      Err   Flt   
2460171.43558   20.5  +/- 0.3   CR    

CR is unfiltered with Rc zero point.

Magnitudes were estimated with the Pan-STARRS cat. 
and are converted using Lupton (2005) equations.

Not corrected for galactic dust extinction.
