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 SAO RAS optical
telescopes RC-500 and Zeiss-1000 equipped with the CCD photometers.
We obtained 90 x 60 sec. images in Rc band with the 0.5-m telescope
on August 20, 18:36:51--20:27:56 and 6 x 300 sec. images in Rc band
with the 1-m telescope on August 20, 21:09:05--21:43:00 UT.

with the brightness of R = 21.58 +/- 0.11 (t_mid - t0 = 8.0237 days)
and R = 21.44 +/- 0.07 (t_mid - t0 = 8.1027 days).

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