We observed the field of GRB 180205A (Evans  et al., GCN 22381)    with
AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy).  We took several images 
in R-filter starting on Feb. 05 (UT) 12:54:29.  The afterglow of GRB 
180205A (Evans  et al., GCN 22381; Zheng et al., GCN 22382; Bolmer et 
al., GCN 22383)  is  clearly detected in a stacked image. Preliminary 
photometry is following.
