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 Fermi GRB 201016B ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 28640) errorbox  559 sec after notice time and 718 sec after trigger time at 2020-10-16 03:28:19 UT, with upper limit up to  19.5 mag. The observations began at zenith distance =  2 deg. The sun  altitude  is -48.2 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -84 deg., longitude l = 342 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
