MASTER-Tunka robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Applied Physics Institute, Irkutsk State University) started inspect of the Fermi GRB 231116A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 35058) errorbox  11646 sec after notice time and 11682 sec after trigger time at 2023-11-16 12:55:17 UT, with upper limit up to  17.5 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 79 deg. The sun  altitude  is -33.8 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -76 deg., longitude l = 258 deg.
