We observed the field of the GRB 221027B (Lien et al., GCN Circ. 32867)
with the COATLI 50-cm telescope and HUITZI f/8 imager at the Observatorio
Astron��mico Nacional on the Sierra de San Pedro M��rtir ( from 2022-10-28 01:47 UTC to 02:13 UTC (6.6
hours after the trigger), obtaining a total of 750 seconds of exposure in
the r filter.

We do not detect any uncataloged sources within the XRT error region
(Beardmore et al., GCN Circ. 32868) to a 3-sigma limit of r > 21.4 mag.

Our photometry is calibrated against the Pan-STARRS1 catalog, is on an
approximate AB system, and is not corrected for Galactic extinction in the
direction of the GRB.

We thank the COATLI/HUITZI technical team and the staff of the Observatorio
Astron��mico Nacional.
