(KIAM) report on behalf of  IKI GRB FuN  collaboration:

We observed the ZTF19abvizsw/AT2019pim (Kool et al., GCN 25616; Burdge 
et al., GCN 25639; Wei et al., GCN 15640; Perley et al., GCN 25643; 
Levan  et al., GCN  25653; Becerra et al., GCN 25655;) with AS-32 (0.7m) 
telescope of Abastumani Observatory and ZTSh telescope of CrAO. 
Preliminary photometry of the the optical transients is following.

2019-09-04 16:54:07 58730.723  R  54*60  21.27   0.16    AbAO/AS-32
2019-09-05 21:49:03 58731.923  R  20*120 21.33   0.14    CrAO/ZTSh

The photometry of the latest epoch of 2019-09-05 might be slightly 
contaminated by red southward star (see also Burdge et al., GCN 25639).
We note the flattening of the initial decay previously reported by 
Becerra (GCN 25655).

The photometry is based on nearby USNO-B1.0 stars
