We observed the field of GRB 030329 (HETE trigger #2652) with the
Tautenburg Schmidt telescope equipped with the prime focus CCD camera
(2k x 2k). Based on the secondary standard star at RA, DEC (J2000) =
10:44:54.43, 21:34:28.6 (R=13.69, I=13.28) provided by Henden (GCN
2023), we measure for the afterglow R=16.4 at 18:54 -- 19:02 UT and
I=15.9 at 18:46 -- 18:54 UT with an estimated error of 0.1 mag.
