We began to observe GRB 210619B (Swift detection: D'Avanzo et al., GCN
30261; GECAM detection: Zhao et al., GCN 30264; Fermi-LAT detection: 
Axelsson et al., GCN 30270; Konus-Wind detection: Svinkin et al., GCN 30276; 
Afterglow detections: Lipunov et al., GCN 30259; D'Avanzo et
al., GCN 30261; Lipunov et al., GCN 30262; Jelinek et al., GCN 30263; 
Kong, GCN 30265; Pellegrin et al., GCN 30268; Perley, GCN 30271; 
Zheng &amp; Filippenko, GCN 30273; Redshift: de Ugarte Postigo, GCN 30272, 
Blazek et al., GCN 30274; Kann et al., 30275) with Xinglong TNT telescope, 
China, at 15:23:44 (UT), 20th. June. 2021,  about 14.43 hours after the burst, 

A series of  R and B band images were obtained. 
The afterglow is clear detected in our single image with a magnitude of 19.0 mag 
in R band comparing to several nearby USNO B1.0 stars.

Observations are still continuing. 

We acknowledge the excellent support from Xinglong staff YuGuang Sun.
