Zhengyang Li, Xiangyan Yuan, Lifan Wang (TAMU), Xiaofeng Wang (Tsinghua University), report on behalf the AST3 Team:
Following the detection of GRB 220527A detected by AGILE (Ursi et al., GCN 
32129), Fermi (Fermi GBM team, GCN 32130; Bissaldi et al., GCN 32131), CALET (Yamaoka et la., GCN 32139), and AstroSat (Gopalakrishnan et al., 
GCN 32140), we use Antarctic Survey Telescope 3-3 at Yaoan Astronomy Observation (China, Yunnan) to follow up for the afterglow (Sbarufatti et
al., GCN 32135; Tohuvavohu, GCN 32136; Imai et al., GCN 32138; Xu et al.,
GCN 32141; Simon et al. 32143; D'Avanzo et al., 32145).

We observed the target position with 14 x 60s exposure in g-band starting from 27 May 2022, UTC 21:11:36.003, 

about 11.9 hours after the burst.

The magnitude detection at the Swift UVOT position (GCN 32136) on the combined images for the GRB afterglow :
g=19.3 +/- 0.06

We used the PS1 catalogue as the magnitude reference for calibration.
