"We imaged the field of GRB 060218 (Cusumano et al., GCNs 4775, 4781)
with the  K-380 Cassegrain  telescope of the Crimean Astrophysical 
Observatory.
Observations of the afterglow  have been carried out  on 2006 Feb 20 - 
Feb 23.
A series of 2-minute exposures in R(Johnson) band were acquired. 
Calibration was
based on the SDSS  catalog. On Feb 20 19:18 - 20:00 UT  for 20 combined 
images,
afterglow has magnitude R = 18.00 +/- 0.06 and displayed the brightening 
 of 0.15 mag/day.
Further observations are planned."
