report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 160804A  (Marshall et al., GCN 19761)  with 
Zeiss-1000 (East) 1-m telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical Observatory. 
We obtained several images in R filter starting on August 04 (UT) 
15:08:18. We clearly detected  optical source reported by Breeveld et 
al. (GCN 19764), Tyurina et al. (GCN 19768), Malesani et al. (GCN 
19770), Moskvitin et al. (GCN 19771), Xu et al. (GCN #19773) and Bolmer 
et al. (GCN 19774). Preliminary photometry of a combined image is following
