MASTER-Amur robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Blagoveshchensk State Pedagogical University) started inspect of the LIGO/Virgo S190930s errorbox  54 sec after trigger time at 2019-09-30 13:36:35 UT, with upper limit up to  17.4 mag. The observations began at zenit distance = 50 deg. The sun  altitude  is -37.8 deg. 

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


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
