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 LAT GRB240118.08 (trigger No 727235294,01h 14m 18.00s , +29d 47m 20.4s, R=0.05) errorbox  10304 sec after notice time and 31631 sec after trigger time at 2024-01-18 10:35:21 UT, with upper limit up to  18.5 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 21 deg. The sun  altitude  is -9.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -32 deg., longitude l = 130 deg.
