E. Mazaeva (IKI), A. Pozanenko (IKI), B. Hafizov (UBAI), A. Volnova 
(IKI), O. Burhonov (UBAI) report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up 

We observed the field of GRB 161004A  (Evans  et al., GCN 19979) with 
AZT-22 telescope of Maidanak observatory equipped with SNUCAM in R 
filter starting on Oct. 04 (UT) 14:25:10. We  clearly detected optical 
afterglow  (Evans  et al., GCN 19979; Breeveld et al., GCN 19984; 
Mazaeva et al., GRB 20011). Preliminary photometry  of the afterglow in 
a combined image is following

Photometry is based on nearby SDSS-DR9 stars used in GCN 19980.
