N. Pankov (HSE, IKI), I. Reva (FAI), V. Kim (FAI), A. Pozanenko (IKI), S. Belkin (IKI) report on behalf of the GRB-IKI-FuN.

We observed the field of the GRB 230816A (Siegel et al., GCN 34450)
with Zeiss-1000 telescope of Tien-Shan Observatory (TShAO) and AZT-20 telescope of Assy Observatory. We clearly detect the afterglow (Jiang et al., GCN 34453; Moskivitin et al., GCN 34456) in the stacked images. 

Preliminary photometry is following
