MASTER-OAFA robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Argentina (OAFA observatory of San Juan National University) started inspect of the Fermi GRB230724.05 (trigger No 711853834,18h 33m 36.00s , +22d 43m 12.0s, R=39.44) errorbox  115 sec after notice time and 151 sec after trigger time at 2023-07-24 01:13:00 UT, with upper limit up to  18.2 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 59 deg. The sun  altitude  is -42.2 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 13 deg., longitude l = 52 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
