We report optical photometry of Type Ia SN2017glq/Gaia17cfi (TNSDR 2017-13365, TNSCR 2017-1194) on 2017-09-19.182 (UT) gathered with the OAUNI 51cm telescope at Huancayo Observatory, Peru. CCD imaging was performed using R band with seeing ~1.6" and airmass = 1.5. A total integration time of 59x20s=1180s yielded R = (14.16 +/- 0.05) mag. NOMAD field stars were used for the zero point calibration. Following OSC (Guillochon et al. 2016, arXiv:1605.01054) light curve, our measurements are very close to the maximum. The OAUNI project is supported by UNI, TWAS, IGP and Cienciactiva (Convenio 102-2015 Fondecyt).
