M. Yoshida, K. Yanagisawa, Y. Shimizu, S. Nagayama, H. Toda (OAO, NAOJ)
and N. Kawai (Tokyo Tech) report on behalf of the MITSuME collaboration:

We performed optical imaging observations (G, Rc and Ic) of the field of
GRB 071112C (Perri et al., GCN 7059) with 50cm MITSuME telescope at
Okayama Astrophysical Observatory from UT 18:35 to UT 19:52 on November
12 2007.

We found a fading source at the position of the optical afterglow
reported by several authors (Yuan et al., GCN 7061; Wang et al., GCN
7063; Burenin et al., GCN 7066; Chen et al., GCN 7067; Sollerman et al.,
GCN 7070) in all bands. We made flux calibration using USNO B1.0
catalog. The photometric results are following.
