MASTER-OAGH robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Mexico (OAGH National Institute for Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics) started inspect of the LIGO/Virgo/KAGRA S230627c errorbox  15958 sec after notice time and 16028 sec after trigger time at 2023-06-27 06:20:45 UT, with upper limit up to  16.4 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 65 deg. The sun  altitude  is -33.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 58 deg., longitude l = 164 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
