Kapanadze (AbAO)  report on behalf of IKI GRB FuN:

We continued observation of the GRB 210807A (Lien et al., GCN 30600; 
Ripa  et al., GCN 30624) with AZT-20 of Assy observatory, AZT-33IK of 
Mondy observatory,  and AS-32 of Abastumani observatory.

The optical transient GRB 210807A (Lien et al., GCN 30600; Hu et al., 
GCN 30602; Lipunov et al., GCN 30607; Kim et al., GCNs 30614, 30616; 
LaPorte et al., GCN 30618; Schmidl et al., GCN 30628) was detected in 
almost all of our stacked images. Preliminary photometric results are 
presented below:

The photometry is based on the nearby stars of the USNO-B1.0 catalog.
USNO-B1.0_id R2
1482-0188929 16.72
1482-0188954 15.47

The light curve can be approximated by broken power law with power law 
indices of -0.55 and -1.05 before and after break at about 0.22 days.
