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 210824A ( K. L. Page et al., GCN 30700) errorbox  45612 sec after notice time and 45332 sec after trigger time at 2021-08-24 16:50:54 UT, with upper limit up to  19.4 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 46 deg. The sun  altitude  is -7.8 deg. 

MASTER-Tavrida robotic telescope  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, SAI Crimea astronomical station) was pointed to the Swift GRB 210824A errorbox  48172 sec after notice time and 47892 sec after trigger time at 2021-08-24 17:33:34 UT, with upper limit up to  19.1 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 47 deg. The sun  altitude  is -10.9 deg. 

MASTER-Kislovodsk robotic telescope  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, Kislovodsk Solar Station of Pulkovo observatory) was pointed to the Swift GRB 210824A errorbox  50320 sec after notice time and 50041 sec after trigger time at 2021-08-24 18:09:23 UT, with upper limit up to  17.4 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 56 deg. The sun  altitude  is -21.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 49 deg., longitude l = 17 deg.
