M. Isogai (IAO, NAOJ) and N. Kawai (Tokyo Tech) report with support 
of MITuME collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 081203A(Parsons, et al., GCN Circ. 8595) 
with the optical 3-color imager attached to the 105cm Murikabushi 
Telescope at Ishigakizima Astronomical Observatory in Japan from 
UT 19:52, 5.9 hours after the trigger.

In the co-added images of Ic, Rc, and g' bands, we detected a fading
point source and measured its magnitude. Photometric calibration was 
performed using the GSC2.3 catalogs. 
The results are following:

MID-MJD      MID-UT    EXP-T      g'             Rc           Ic
