We report optical photometric observations of the 2017 eruption (see ATels #11116, #11117, #11118, #11121, #11124, #11125, #11126, #11133) of the recurrent nova M31N 2008-12a (Henze et al. 2014, 2015a, 2015b; Darnley et al. 2014, 2015, 2016). The data were obtained between 2018 Jan 05.0 UT - Jan 06.5 UT with the 0.96 m and 1.0 SARA telescopes equipped with ARC CCD camera(Keel et al. 2017, located at the Kitt Peak National Observatory (SARA-KPNO), Arizona and Roque de los Muchachos, La Palma, Spain (SARA-ORM), respectively. The derived magnitudes were calibrated with the standard stars in the field of this nova.
