MASTER-Tunka robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Applied Physics Institute, Irkutsk State University) was pointed to the Swift GRB 240112C ( R. A. J. Eyles-Ferris et al., GCN 35522) errorbox  8981 sec after notice time and 9002 sec after trigger time at 2024-01-12 20:07:27 UT, with upper limit up to  15.4 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 85 deg. The sun  altitude  is -45.5 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 21 deg., longitude l = 51 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
