We observed the EP240414A (Lian et al., GCN 36091) with the Zeiss-2000 telescope of Terskol observatory in R-filter on 2024-04-15 starting (UT) 22:55:21. We did not detect the optical counterpart (Aryan et al., GCN 36094; Xu et al., GCN 36105; Jonker et al., GCN 36110; Xiong et al., 36130; Srivastav et al., GCN 36150; Li et al., GCN 36154; Wang et al., GCN 36171;) down to the limiting magnitude of R~22.0. Preliminary photometry of a stacked image is the following
