[en] We present VR observations of QSO 2237+ 0305 conducted by the Gravitational Lensing International Time Project collaboration from 1999 October 1 to 2000 February 3. The observations were made with the 2.56 m Nordic Optical Telescope at Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, La Palma ( Spain). The pointspread function ( PSF) fitting method and an adapted version of the ISIS subtraction method have been used to derive the VR light curves of the four components ( A D) of the quasar. The mean errors range in the intervals 0.01-0.04 mag ( PSF fitting) and 0.01-0.02 mag ( ISIS subtraction), with the faintest component ( D) having the largest uncertainties. We address the relatively good agreement between the A and D light curves derived using different filters, photometric techniques, and telescopes. The new VR light curves of component A extend the time coverage of a high-magnification microlensing peak, which was discovered by the OGLE team.
