A. Volnova (IKI),  A. Pozanenko (IKI),  E. Klunko (ISTP), R. Inasaridze

IKI-GRB-FuN:

We observed the field of localization of  GRB 190204A   (Lien et al. GCN
23852)    with AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy).   We
started observations on Feb. 04 (UT) 13:10:12 in R-filter. We do not
detect  the optical afterglow (Lien et al.  GCN 23852; Watson et al.,
GCN  23861;  Kuin et al., GCN  23863). Preliminary photometry of the
field is following.

The photometry is based on nearby SDSS stars:
SDSS_id                         R_Lupton
J232549.70+545348.8 16.978 0.014

J232544.33+545253.6 16.085 0.013


Our observation confirm rapid initial decay of the afterglow detected by
UVOT (Kuin et al., GCN  23863).
