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 (Fermi GBM Team, GCN 34386;
Scotton et al., GCN 34392; Page et al. GCN 34394; Kuin et al.,
GCN 34399; Casentini et al., GCN 34402) with the 1-m telescope
of SAO RAS Zeiss-1000 equipped with the CCD photometer. We obtained
8 x 300 sec. images in Rc band on 19:02:23--20:57:14 UT and
8 x 300 sec. images in B  band on 19:45:22--21:08:27 UT (August 15).

is clearly detected in our stacked frames with the brightness of
R = 21.40 +/- 0.06 (t_mid - t0 = 3.0428 days),
B = 22.23 +/- 0.09 (t_mid - t0 = 3.0616 days).

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