We observed the field of GRB 231205B detected by Swift (Evans et al., GCN 35269) using the GOT-0.5m telescope located at Gaoyazi, Xinjiang, China. Observations started at 16:46:51 UT on 2023-12-05, i.e., 172 s after the Swift/BAT trigger, and we obtained 5x3, 5x5, 5x10, 5x15, 5x20, 5x40, 10x60, 10x90, 10x120, 10x200 s frames with the Sloan r filter.

No optical counterpart is detected in our stacked image at the Enhanced XRT position (Osborne et al., GCN 35275), down to the following 3-sigma limiting magnitude of m(r)>21.2 @ 0.80 hr
calibrated with nearby PanSTARRS stars and the magnitude is not corrected for Galactic extinction.
