MASTER-Tavrida robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, SAI Crimea astronomical station) was pointed to the Swift GRB 200711A ( F. E. Marshall et al., GCN 28078) errorbox  26829 sec after notice time and 26854 sec after trigger time at 2020-07-11 18:32:11 UT, with upper limit up to  15.9 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 59 deg. The sun  altitude  is -10.2 deg. 

MASTER-Kislovodsk robotic telescope  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, Kislovodsk Solar Station of Pulkovo observatory) was pointed to the Swift GRB 200711A errorbox  26939 sec after notice time and 26964 sec after trigger time at 2020-07-11 18:34:00 UT, with upper limit up to  16.7 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 54 deg. The sun  altitude  is -15.0 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -3 deg., longitude l = 35 deg.

   26945 |      MASTER-Tavrida |   C |   180 | 15.9 |        
   26994 |   MASTER-Kislovodsk |   C |    60 | 16.7 |        
Filter C is a clear (unfiltred) band. 


The observation and reduction will continue.
