report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 141121A (Lien et al., GCN 17075)
with  Zeiss-1000 (East) 1-m telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical
Observatory  starting on Nov. 22 (UT) 21:45:26.  We obtained several 
images in R-filter. In a combined image we clearly  detect optical 
afterglow (Tanga et al., GCN 17078; Perley et al., GCN 17081).

A preliminary photometry is based on nearby SDSS DR9 stars:
