We observed the field of GRB220101A (Tohuvavohu et al., GCN #31347; Arimoto et al., 
GCN #31350; AGILE Ursi et al., GCN #31354) 
with the RC80 robotic telescope at Piszkesteto Station of Konkoly
Observatory on 2022 Jan 01  starting at 21:32:18 UT. A series of 5x300 sec
frames were collected through Sloan r'- and i' bands. The bright optical afterglow
(Kuin & Tohuvavohu, GCN #31351; Fu et al., GCN #31353; Hentunen et al., GCN
#31356; Perley, GCN #31357; Ugarte Postigo et al. GCN #31358; Fynbo et al. GCN #31359)
is clearly detected on the stacked frames with the following magnitudes, calibrated
via nearby PS1 stars:
