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 GRB231216.77 (trigger No 1202749,02h 39m 02.16s , +33d 35m 45.6s, R=0.05) errorbox  47 sec after notice time and 382 sec after trigger time at 2023-12-16 18:42:04 UT, with upper limit up to  17.6 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 66 deg. The sun  altitude  is -11.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -24 deg., longitude l = 148 deg.
