Following the detection of GRB 210619B by Swift (D'Avanzo et al. GCN 30261), GECAM (Zhao et al. GCN 30264), CALET (Kawakubo et al. GCNC 30284), SRG/ART-XC (Levin et al. GCNC 30283), Fermi-LAT (Axelsson et al. GCNC 30270), Konus-Wind (Svinkin et al. GCN 30276) and Fermi/GBM (Poolakkil et al. GCNC 30279), images in BVRI bands were obtained at the 1.5m OSN telescope in Granada (Spain) starting on Jun 20, 22:33 UT. We detect the optical afterglow (Lipunov et al. GCNC 30259; Lipunov et al.

GCNC 30288; D'Avanzo et al. GCNC 30289; Cunningham et al. GCNC 30290; and Moskvitin et al. GCNC 30291) for which we measure R = 19.9 +/- 0.2 (~0.94 d after trigger). Further observations are ongoing.

We thank the staff at OSN for their excellent support.
