report on behalf of a larger collaboration (TUG, IKI, KSU):

We have observed the optical transient (OT) of GRB 021004 (GCN #1564,
1565, 1568) with the 1.5m RTT150 telescope of TUG (TUBITAK National
Observatory, Turkey) on Bakirlitepe between 19:30 and 20:30 UT on Oct 4 2002.

We find:

UT start   exp_tim   band  magnitude
 19:48:09   900 s    R     17.82+-0.03
 20:08:25   600 s    I     17.18+-0.04
