MASTER-OAFA robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Argentina (OAFA observatory of San Juan National University) started inspect of the MAXI GRB220310.02 (trigger No 648001812,11h 14m 26.88s , +23d 27m 03.6s, R=1) errorbox 1874 sec after trigger time at 2022-03-10 00:59:36 UT, with upper limit up to  17.9 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 76 deg. The sun  altitude  is -25.7 deg. 

MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) started inspect of the MAXI GRB220310.02 errorbox  8 sec after notice time and 2024 sec after trigger time at 2022-03-10 01:02:06 UT, with upper limit up to  18.7 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 65 deg. The sun  altitude  is -41.9 deg. 

MASTER-Kislovodsk robotic telescope  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, Kislovodsk Solar Station of Pulkovo observatory) started inspect of the MAXI GRB220310.02 errorbox  30 sec after notice time and 2046 sec after trigger time at 2022-03-10 01:02:28 UT, with upper limit up to  15.2 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 50 deg. The sun  altitude  is -27.8 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 68 deg., longitude l = 218 deg.
