"We have observed the field of GRB 111225A (Siegel et al. GCNC 12720)  
with the 1.23m CAHA telescope. The observations were carried out in  
Dec 25.74725 - 25.83561 UT (14.1--16.2 hours post burst) in the R-band  
with a total exposure time of 11x300+15x180s. We detect the optical  
afterglow of the burst with an R-band magnitude of R=21.60+/-0.16,  
with respect to the USNO B1.0 catalogue."
