MASTER-Tunka robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Applied Physics Institute, Irkutsk State University) was pointed to the Swift GRB240109.17 (trigger No 1207446,20h 05m 16.32s , +16d 34m 40.8s, R=0.05) errorbox  22878 sec after notice time and 22901 sec after trigger time at 2024-01-09 10:23:16 UT, with upper limit up to  15.7 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 62 deg. The sun  altitude  is -9.6 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -8 deg., longitude l = 57 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
