I observed the field of GRB 210306A (D'Elia et al., GCN Circ. 29597)
with remote telescope T24 (0.61-m f/6.5 reflector + CCD) of
iTelescope.Net in Sierra Remote Observatory (Auberry, California, USA)
on 2021-03-06. Two images (exposures 300 seconds, BINx1) were obtained
with luminance filter since 04:42:56 UT (2939 seconds after the
trigger) and since 04:48:59 UT (3302 seconds after the trigger). I
clearly detected the optical afterglow in UVOT position. The following
magnitudes were measured from comparison to r magnitudes of nearby
stars from Pan-STARRS DR1 catalogue (Chambers et al., 2016): 17.80
(+/- 0.057) and 17.97 (+/- 0.038).

Magnitudes were not corrected for Galactic extinction.
