We observed the field of GRB 201104B (Sbarufatti et al., GCN  28825) 
with Kitab-ISON RC-36  telescope in Clear filter.  Observation started 
on Nov. 4  (UT) 18:44:28, i.e. 77 minutes after trigger.
The optical afterglow (Marshall et al., GCN 28827; Vielfaure  et al., 
GCN 28840; Oates  et al., GCN 28851) at redshift z = 1.954 (Vielfaure et 
al., GCN 28840) is marginally (S/N = 1.8) detected in stacked image. 
Preliminary photometry of the afterglow is following.

  Date,      UT start, t-T0,   Exp.,  Filter, OT,   S/N  UL(3 sigma)
                     (mid, days)
