MASTER-OAFA robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, 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 210903B ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 30754) errorbox 6219 sec after trigger time at 2021-09-03 02:14:25 UT, with upper limit up to  18.5 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 67 deg. The sun  altitude  is -49.9 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 17 deg., longitude l = 42 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
