MASTER II  robotic telescope (MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru)
located in Tunka was pointed to the  GRB140311A  27 sec after trigger time
and  127 sec after trigger
time at 2014-03-11 21:07:23 UT in two polarizations. On our first (30s
exposure) set we haven`t found optical transient  within SWIFT error-box
(Racusin et. al GCN 15944).
The 5-sigma upper limit has been about 16.27mag


MASTER II  robotic telescope located in Blagoveschensk was pointed to the  GRB140311A 10 sec after
