(Konkoly Observatory, Hungary) report:

We observed the field of the bright GRB221009A (Dichiara et al., GCN #32632, Veres et al., GCN #32636)
with the RC80 robotic telescope at Piszkesteto Station of Konkoly Observatory on 2022 Oct 10.81 UT 
and Oct 12.85 UT, during inferior sky conditions. A series of 300 sec frames were collected through 
Sloan r'- and i' bands. The bright optical afterglow
