Recently, to observe afterglow at various places has appeared necessary. To do so, we have set a fully automated afterglow searching system named MIKOTS. The aperture of our telescope, with a CCD camera, is 300 mm and the focal length is about 1000 mm. The CCD has 512 × 512 pixels size corresponding to a chip size of 10.2 mm ×10.2 mm. The field of view, resolution and lower limit magnitude are 37'.0 × 37'.0, 4".12 × 4".12 and 18.1, respectively. This system can start observation less than 15 seconds after receiving the data from GCN.
