behalf of GRB IKI FuN:

We observed the ZTF20acozryr/AT2020yxz (Coughlin et al., GCN  28841) 
with AZT-33IK telescope of Mondy observatory, RC-36 telescope of Kitab 
observatory, and Zeiss-1000 of Tian Shan observatory.  We detect the 
optical transient (Coughlin et al., GCN  28841; Xu  et al., GCN 28846; 
Zhu et al., GCN 28854; Mao et al., GCN  28861; Belkin et al., GCN 28862; 
  Mao et al., GCN 28863) associated with afterglow of GRB 201103B (Ursi 
et al., GCN 28831; Svinkin et al., GCN 28844; Evans  et al., GCN 28858).

Preliminary photometry of the afterglow is following
