We observed GRB 221009A/Swift J1913.1+1946 (Dichiara et al., GCN 32632; 
Kennea and Williams, GCN  32635; Veres et al., GCN  32636; Bissaldi et 
al., GCN  32636; Svinkin et al., GCN 32641; Piano et al., GCN 32657; 
Pillera et al., GCN 32658;  Gotz et al., GCN 32660;  Frederiks et al., 
GCN 32668)  with AZT-20 telescope of Assy-Turgen observatory starting on 
2022-10-10 (UT) 17:12:51. The observations were carried out sequentially 
with three images for 30 seconds, in each filter. In stacked images we 
clearly detect the optical afterglow (e.g. Dichiara et al., GCN 32632; 
Lipunov et al., GCN 32634; Perley GCN 32638; Hu et al., GCN 32644; 
Belkin  et al., GCN 32645; Kuin et al., GCN 32656). Preliminary 
photometry of the afterglow is following

The photometry is based on the nearby PS1 stars.
