A. Volnova (IKI), P. Phorunzij (INASAN), A. Pozanenko (IKI),  N. Pankov (IKI, HSE), S. Belkin (IKI, HSE)  report on behalf of GRB IKI FuN:

We observed the GRB 240101A  (Cenko et al., GCN 35448) with Zeiss-2000   telescope of Terskol observatory starting on 2024-01-01 (UT) 16:10:24.   Within enhanced Enhanced Swift-XRT position (Beardmore et al., GCN 35452)  we do not detect any optical objects. However we marginally detected the object at coordinates (J2000) 00:41:23.50 +8:30:58.48, which is 3.4 arcsec from XRT position (Beardmore et al., GCN 35452). Preliminary photometry of the marginally detected object is following.
