A. Volnova (IKI),  A. Novichonok (KIAM), A. Pozanenko (IKI), S. Kotov  (SAO 
RAS), T. Movsesyan (BAO),  E. Mazaeva (IKI)  report on behalf of of
larger GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 180205A (Evans  et al., GCN 22381) with 
Schmidt-1m telescope of Byurakan Astrophysical Observatory (BAO).  We took 
several images in r (Sloan)-filter  starting on Feb. 08 (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. GCN 22392; Zhu et al. GCN 22395; Emery 
et al. GCN  22396; Im et al., GCN 22397; Oksanen et al. 22401; Mazaeva et 
al., GCN 22403)  is  clearly detected in a stacked image. Preliminary 
photometry  is following.
