(ISTP), A. Pozanenko (IKI) report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up 

We observed the optical afterglow (Elenin et al., GCN 16143; Kaur et 
al., GCN 16144; Ferrante et al., GCN 16145; Chester et al., GCN 16147;
Maehara et al., GCN 16151) of the Swift GRB 140423A (Sonbas et al.,
GCN 16142) with AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy). We took 
several images in R-filter of 60 s exposure on Apr., 25 and
of 120 s exposure on Apr., 26 and 27.

The details of the photometry are the following:

The photometry is based on two SDSS stars, R (gri -> R transformations 
by Lupton 2005):
