MASTER-Kislovodsk robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, Kislovodsk Solar Station of Pulkovo observatory) was pointed to the Swift GRB230427.44 (trigger No 1165948,10h 13m 17.76s , +48d 10m 48.0s, R=0.05) errorbox  24243 sec after notice time and 24285 sec after trigger time at 2023-04-27 17:16:37 UT, with upper limit up to  19.0 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance =  6 deg. The sun  altitude  is -12.4 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 53 deg., longitude l = 168 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
