#32729) with the optical three color (g', Rc, and Ic) CCD cameras
attached to the MITSuME 50 cm telescope Okayama.

The observation with a series of 60 sec exposures started at
2022-10-09 9:51:38 UT (0.857 day after the Swift detection). We
stacked the images with good conditions. Here we report a Ic-band
magnitude by the forced-photometry at the Swift/UVOT position
(Dichiara et al. GCN Circular #32632), and the 5-sigma limits of the
stacked images in the g' and Rc bands.

T0+[day] |MID-UT | T-EXP[sec] | magnitudes of forced-photometry
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.9320 | 2022-10-10 11:39:09| 8340 | g'>18.3, Rc>17.0, Ic=17.1+/-0.2

T-EXP: Total Exposure time

We used PS1 catalog for flux calibration. The magnitudes are expressed
in the AB system. The images were processed in real-time through the
MITSuME GPU reduction pipeline (Niwano et al. 2021, PASJ, Vol.73,
Issue 1, Pages 4-24; https://github.com/MNiwano/Eclaire).
