MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) started inspect of the Fermi GRB210101.86 (trigger No 631226368,00h 41m 12.00s , -06d 54m 36.0s, R=5.18) errorbox  1084 sec after notice time and 1131 sec after trigger time at 2021-01-01 20:58:15 UT, with upper limit up to  17.5 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 68 deg. The sun  altitude  is -29.6 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -69 deg., longitude l = 117 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
