follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 171205A (D'Elia et al., GCN 22177)   with 
Zeiss-1000 1-m telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical Observatory starting on 
Dec. 06 (UT) 22:2319. We took several images in R-filter.  The afterglow of 
GRB 171205A (Izzo et al. GCN 22180; Emery et al. GCN 22181; Butler et al. 
GCN 22182; Mao et al. GCN 22186; Choi et al. GCN 22188; Melandri et al. GCN 
22189; Steeghs et al. GCN 22190; Cobb et al. GCN 22192; Volnova et al. GCN 
22193; Guidorzi et al. GCN 22197; Schmidl et al. GCN 22198; Lipunov et al.
