We perform optical monitoring of a sample of gamma-bright blazars using 0.7-m AZT-7 telescope (Crimean Astrophysical Observatory), as a part of WEBT/GASP project. We report that CTA102 reached R=14.33 in the night of 2016 June 08, TJD 57548.5. This is a brightest value since its huge outburst in 2012. R band light curve for CTA102 can be seen on our web-page.
