MASTER Global robotic net (MASTER-Net: Lipunov et al.,2010,Advances in Astronomy,2010,30L)
started inspect of Fermi short GRB 200211A (Ttrigger=2022-02-11 01:07:48UT, GCN 31570
33 sec after notice time (64 sec after trigger time) at 2022-02-11 01:08:53 UT
and observed it at MASTER-IAC, -Tavrida, -Amur, -Kislovodsk, 
-SAAO, -OAGH, see cover map in Lipunov et al. GCN 31571 )

ZTF (Andreoni  et al. GCN31590) discovered new OT at
R.A.,Dec.=13:34:43.20,+33:13:00.44 (ZTF22aaajecp/AT2022cmc) on 2022-02-11 10:42 UT

We are analyzing 1864 MASTER database images of these coordinates since 2006y up to now.

Preliminary results of OT detections (unfiltered,calibrated by Gaia) are the following:
Date, m_OT
2022-02-13.03UT 19.4 
2017-11-14.85UT 17.8 
2014-03-27.68UT 19.0

The analysis will be continued.
Additional observations are planned.
