MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) was pointed to the Swift GRB 200411A ( A. Tohuvavohu et al., GCN 27536) errorbox  46681 sec after notice time and 46701 sec after trigger time at 2020-04-11 17:27:24 UT, with upper limit up to  18.9 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 56 deg. The sun  altitude  is -14.6 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -54 deg., longitude l = 266 deg.
