LCOGT) report:

We observed the optical afterglow of GRB 080607 (Mangano et al., GCN 
7847, Rujopakarn et al., GCN 7846) with the 1.3m Peters Automated Infrared 
Imaging Telescope (PAIRITEL). Observations began at 06:08:44 Jun 07, 
2008 UT. We detect the afterglow in a 612 sec mosaic of 7.8 sec 
simultaneous exposures in the J, H, and Ks filters. Preliminary 
photometry for the afterglow in exposures beginning on 06:10:32 Jun 07, 
2008 UT yields J = 17.1 +- 0.1, H = 15.3 +- 0.1, and  Ks = 13.7 +- 0.1, 
calibrated to the 2MASS system.
