We observed the field of GRB 240225B (Nakajima et al., GCN 35796; Evans, GCN 35797, 
Joshi et al., GCN 35798; D'Ai et al., GCN 35810; Kawakubo et al., GCN 35811) with 
AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy) equipped with CMOS-photometer 
ANDOR NEO. We took 60x120 sec frames in the R-filter starting on 2024-02-26 (UT) 
12:30:03. The optical afterglow (Gompertz et al., GCN 35805; Liu et al., GCN 35812; 
Malesani et al., GCN 35819; Wise et al., GCN 35820; Gompertz & Malesani, GCN 35824) 
is well detected in the stacked frame with a total exposure of 59x120 sec. Photometry 
of the optical afterglow is following:
