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 Fermi GRB 231114A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 35025) errorbox  42669 sec after notice time and 42703 sec after trigger time at 2023-11-14 21:10:23 UT, with upper limit up to  18.1 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 78 deg. The sun  altitude  is -36.8 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 15 deg., longitude l = 269 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
