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 GRB220506.27 (trigger No 705216502,15h 58m 04.80s , -27d 01m 58.8s, R=1) errorbox  17 sec after notice time and 14007 sec after trigger time at 2022-05-06 10:21:51 UT, with upper limit up to  14.5 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 61 deg. The sun  altitude  is -10.4 deg. 

MASTER-OAGH robotic telescope  located in Mexico (OAGH National Institute for Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics) started inspect of the MAXI GRB220506.27 errorbox  65 sec after notice time and 14055 sec after trigger time at 2022-05-06 10:22:39 UT, with upper limit up to  19.0 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 65 deg. The sun  altitude  is -24.6 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 19 deg., longitude l = 347 deg.
