MASTER-OAFA robotic telescope (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L) located in Argentina (OAFA observatory of San Juan National University) was pointed to the  GRB191011.19 14 sec after notice time and 34 sec after trigger time at 2019-10-11 04:36:30 UT. On our 3-th (30s exposure)  set , obtained 148 sec after tigger time at 2019-10-11 04:38:25 UT, we  found 1 optical transient within Swift error-box (ra=44.7208 dec=-27.845 r=0.05) brighter than 15.7.

The OT has irregular early time  behaviour since 410.7 till 643.2 seconds after the trigger.
The 5-sigma upper limit has been about 15.7mag
