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 19:46:41--20:32:24 UT  (August 17).

frame with the brightness of R = 21.46 +/- 0.06 (t_mid - t0 = 4.0496d).

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