(ISTP),  M. Eselevich (ISTP), report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up 

We observed the field of GRB 140304A (Evans et al., GCN 15915)  with 
AZT-33IK telescope of Mondy observatory starting on Mar. 04 (UT) 
13:54:10, i.e. ~0.5 hour after burst trigger. In the first images of 60 
s exposure we clearly detected afterglow of GRB 140304A reported by 
Gorbovskoy et al. (GCN 15914) and Xu et al. (GCN 15916).  Preliminary 
photometry of the fading afterglow is following:

The photometry is based on reference stars SDSS-DR9, (R mag,
transformation by Lupton 2005):
