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 GRB231205.70 (trigger No 1200812,03h 36m 36.96s , +27d 08m 45.6s, R=0.05) errorbox  8923 sec after notice time and 9002 sec after trigger time at 2023-12-05 19:14:01 UT, with upper limit up to  17.6 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 66 deg. The sun  altitude  is -18.4 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -22 deg., longitude l = 163 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
