MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) started inspect of the Fermi GRB231123.81 (trigger No 722460326,11h 08m 43.20s , -78d 03m 00.0s, R=8.7) errorbox  1 days 17303 sec after notice time and 1 days 17335 sec after trigger time at 2023-11-25 00:14:17 UT, with upper limit up to  18.0 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 52 deg. The sun  altitude  is -31.3 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -16 deg., longitude l = 298 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
