MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) started inspect of the Fermi GRB230415.87 (trigger No 703284533,09h 58m 14.40s , -10d 45m 36.0s, R=3.64) errorbox  2748 sec after notice time and 2779 sec after trigger time at 2023-04-15 21:35:08 UT, with upper limit up to  19.5 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 41 deg. The sun  altitude  is -63.4 deg. 

MASTER-Kislovodsk robotic telescope  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, Kislovodsk Solar Station of Pulkovo observatory) started inspect of the Fermi GRB230415.87 errorbox  2762 sec after notice time and 2794 sec after trigger time at 2023-04-15 21:35:22 UT, with upper limit up to  18.2 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 76 deg. The sun  altitude  is -36.9 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 34 deg., longitude l = 250 deg.
