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 LIGO/Virgo S190524q errorbox  164 sec after trigger time at 2019-05-24 04:54:50 UT, with upper limit up to  17.6 mag. The observations began at zenit distance = 110 deg. The sun  altitude  is -78.4 deg. 

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


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
