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) was pointed to the Swift GRB231118.72 (trigger No 1197311,00h 19m 22.32s , -48d 02m 06.0s, R=0.05) errorbox  10975 sec after notice time and 10996 sec after trigger time at 2023-11-18 20:19:50 UT, with upper limit up to  19.2 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 21 deg. The sun  altitude  is -30.8 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -69 deg., longitude l = 317 deg.
