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) started inspect of the Fermi GRB240112.73 (trigger No 726773850,17h 29m 57.60s , +29d 09m 00.0s, R=2.34) errorbox  60679 sec after notice time and 60712 sec after trigger time at 2024-01-13 10:29:17 UT, with upper limit up to  15.8 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 78 deg. The sun  altitude  is -9.8 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 29 deg., longitude l = 53 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
