We observed the field of GRB 180205A (Evans  et al., GCN 22381) with 
AS-32 (0.7m) telescope of Abastumani Observatory starting on Feb., 06 
(UT)  23:53:51. We obtained several unfiltered images  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; Tanvir et al. 
GCN 22384; Volnova et al. GCN 22387; Falcon et al. GCN 22380; Xin et al. 
22392; Zhu et al. 22395; Emery et al. 22396; Im et al., GCN 22397)  is 
clearly detected in a stacked image. Preliminary photometry is following.
