We report detection and photometry of the optical afterglow of GRB230812B (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 RC80 robotic telescope at Piszkesteto Station of Konkoly
Observatory taken on 2023-08-13 to 2023-08-15. A series of 300 sec
frames were collected through Sloan r'- and i' bands. The optical afterglow
