MASTER-Tavrida robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, SAI Crimea astronomical station) started inspect of the Fermi GRB190418.92 ( 17h 52m 12.00s , +23d  9m 00.00s, R=34.55) errorbox  11220 sec after trigger time at 2019-04-19 01:11:03 UT, with upper limit up to  17.4 mag. The observations began at zenit distance = 22 deg. The sun  altitude  is -17.5 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -60 deg., longitude l = 98 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
