GRB follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 180914B (Ursi, et al., GCN  23226; Bissaldi 
et al., GCN 23232;  Frederiks et al., GCN 23240) with Zeiss-1000 1-m 
telescope of Tien Shan Astronomical Observatory starting on September 16 
(UT) 19:44:34, obtaining a total of 46.5 minutes exposure in the 
Rc-band. Within XRT position (D'Ai et al., GCN 23236)  we detect the 
object reported by Zheng & Filippenko (GCN 23237), Troja et al. (GCN 
23238),  (Paul & Kuin, GCN 23241). Preliminary photometry of the objext
