We observed GRB080603A (Paizis et al., GCN 7790), with
Xinglong 2.16m telescope + BFOSC on Jun 4, 1.321 Days

GCN 7788; Chornock et al., GCN 7789; Kuin et al., GCN 7804
Kann et al. GCN 7822) at 3 sigma level. With the same
calibration star as used in GCN 7822 (Kann et al.) USNOB1.0
1527-0313986 at RA = 18:37:55.186, Dec. +62:45:32.28  
R1 = 16.74, we estimated the OT brightness was R ~ 21.3
+/- 0.3. We also detected the faint star at east side of OT
noted by Kann et al.
