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 211204A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 31167) errorbox  425 sec after notice time and 452 sec after trigger time at 2021-12-04 03:35:08 UT, with upper limit up to  18.4 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 32 deg. The sun  altitude  is -35.5 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -62 deg., longitude l = 270 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
