MASTER-Tavrida robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, SAI Crimea astronomical station) was pointed to the IceCube Alert 230914.22 (trigger No 45413430,10h 56m 00.00s , +32d 30m 50.4s, R=0.73) errorbox  73499 sec after notice time and 73545 sec after trigger time at 2023-09-15 01:46:49 UT, with upper limit up to  17.3 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 78 deg. The sun  altitude  is -17.2 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 65 deg., longitude l = 194 deg.
