18:25:48. We took several images in R-filter of 120 s exposure under 
poor weather conditions and mean seeing of 5". The optical afterglow 
(Littlejohns et al. GCN 16592; Varela et al. GCN 16953; Gorosabel et al. 
GCN 16954) is clearly visible in our stacked image.   Photometry of a 
combined image is following
