MASTER-Kislovodsk robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, Kislovodsk Solar Station of Pulkovo observatory) was pointed to the IceCube Alert 231211.03 (trigger No 4054005,20h 50m 27.12s , +10d 03m 10.8s, R=0.51) errorbox  49886 sec after notice time and 49930 sec after trigger time at 2023-12-11 14:39:42 UT, with upper limit up to  16.8 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 41 deg. The sun  altitude  is -11.3 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -21 deg., longitude l = 57 deg.
