MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) started inspect of the Fermi GRB220831.58 (trigger No 683646997,01h 52m 24.00s , -45d 05m 24.0s, R=7.86) errorbox  349 sec after notice time and 34983 sec after trigger time at 2022-08-31 23:39:36 UT, with upper limit up to  15.8 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 27 deg. The sun  altitude  is -62.6 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -68 deg., longitude l = 272 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
