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) started inspect of the Fermi GRB 240123B ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 35608) errorbox  17492 sec after notice time and 17523 sec after trigger time at 2024-01-23 22:40:06 UT, with upper limit up to  17.1 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 79 deg. The sun  altitude  is -21.0 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -17 deg., longitude l = 64 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
