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 GRB210822.27 (trigger No 651306769,22h 53m 48.00s , -46d 18m 00.0s, R=2.08) errorbox  44653 sec after notice time and 65943 sec after trigger time at 2021-08-23 00:51:47 UT, with upper limit up to  17.9 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 21 deg. The sun  altitude  is -53.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -60 deg., longitude l = 345 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
