"We observed the optical afterglow of GRB 080605 (Kann et al.
GCN 7829, Sbarufatti et al. GCN 7828, Gomboc et al. GCN 7831)
with the 30cm BOOTES-1B and with the 60cm BOOTES-2/TELMA
robotic telescopes in southern Spain.

The sequence of observations started 43s after the GRB trigger.
We clearly detect a 15th mag transient outshining the nearby star
in R-band (BOOTES-2/TELMA) and without filter (BOOTES-1B). "
