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 LIGO/Virgo S230606d errorbox  4075 sec after notice time and 4138 sec after trigger time at 2023-06-06 01:52:03 UT, with upper limit up to  18.7 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 55 deg. The sun  altitude  is -46.1 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 31 deg., longitude l = 174 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
