MASTER-IAC robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Spain (IAC Teide Observatory) was pointed to the IceCube Alert 220115.51 (trigger No 48281000,23h 49m 18.48s , +25d 07m 30.0s, R=0.51) errorbox  27563 sec after notice time and 27617 sec after trigger time at 2022-01-15 19:51:57 UT, with upper limit up to  18.4 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 36 deg. The sun  altitude  is -18.1 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -36 deg., longitude l = 106 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
