We report multi-color CCD photometry of the recurrent nova M31N 2008-12a, obtained near the peak of its most recent eruption (ATel #11116). The data, which were acquired with the CCD imaging camera on the 40-inch reflector at San Diego State University's Mount Laguna Observatory, yielded the following magnitudes:
