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) started inspect of the MAXI GRB210521.54 (trigger No 355431084,17h 38m 53.52s , -61d 22m 44.4s, R=1) errorbox  51456 sec after notice time and 56029 sec after trigger time at 2021-05-22 04:38:07 UT, with upper limit up to  15.6 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 50 deg. The sun  altitude  is -10.1 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -16 deg., longitude l = 331 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
