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 Fermi GRB211018.94 (trigger No 656288898,01h 02m 31.20s , -00d 40m 48.0s, R=1.23) errorbox  57 sec after notice time and 87 sec after trigger time at 2021-10-18 22:29:41 UT, with upper limit up to  16.4 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 32 deg. The sun  altitude  is -48.1 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -63 deg., longitude l = 130 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
