MASTER-OAFA robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Argentina (OAFA observatory of San Juan National University) started inspect of the LIGO/Virgo S230618d errorbox 65 sec after trigger time at 2023-06-18 02:43:34 UT, with upper limit up to  19.4 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 65 deg. The sun  altitude  is -64.0 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -75 deg., longitude l = 290 deg.
