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 GRB230311.82 (trigger No 1159437,16h 33m 41.21s , -47d 38m 32.3s, R=0.05) errorbox  40 sec after notice time and 478 sec after trigger time at 2023-03-11 19:46:31 UT, with upper limit up to  16.2 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 85 deg. The sun  altitude  is -33.9 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -0 deg., longitude l = 337 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
