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) was pointed to the  GRB231210.90 92 sec after notice time and 124 sec after trigger time at 2023-12-10 21:31:08 UT. On our first (10s exposure)  set we  found 1 optical transient within Swift error-box (ra=95.7708 dec=-48.3583 r=0.05) brighter than  16.9.
