Komarova (SAO RAS, Niznijh Arkhyz, Russia), report:

We performed the third epoch of observations of the GRB 100805A (Hoversten
E. A. et al., GCN 11047) field with the Zeiss-1000 telescope of SAO RAS,
Russia. The observations were carried out in the Rc band on Aug. 9.882 -
10.043 UT under good weather conditions and the seeing 1".7.

At the position of OT we detected an object with R = 23.54 +/- 0.22.

We assume the magnitude of the reference USNO-B1.0 star (L. P. Xin et al.,
GCN 11065; A. S. Moskvitin et al., GCN 11071, A. S. Moskvitin et al.,
GCN 11076) as R = 17.41.

Also we estimate the magnitude of the source reported by V. Rumyantsev and
A. Pozanenko (GCN 11077) as R = 22.31 +/- 0.08 according to their standard
star with R=17.59. All errors are formal and they do not include errors of
the USNO-B1.0 to Johnson-Cousins photometric system transformation.

Images from all 3 epochs with the marked OT and nearby object (GCN 11077)
can be found in
