report:

We continue our observations of the optical counterpart of GRB060526
(Campana et al. GCN 5162; French & Jelinek GCN 5165; Rykoff et al. GCN
5166) with Russian-Turkish 1.5-m telescope (RTT150, Bakirlitepe,TUBITAK
National Observatory, Turkey). A series of frames were taken on May
31. The afterglow is detected on combined images in both V and R bands.

We estimate the following Rc magnitudes for the OT:

    t-t0  m_R     err
  125.74  23.69   0.19
