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) started inspect of the Fermi GRB 240115B ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 35540) errorbox  12811 sec after notice time and 12818 sec after trigger time at 2024-01-15 20:19:16 UT, with upper limit up to  16.3 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 87 deg. The sun  altitude  is -26.0 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 28 deg., longitude l = 299 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here: 
https://master.sai.msu.ru/site/master2/observ.php?id=2356581

We obtain a following upper limits.
