MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) was pointed to the Swift GRB240205.93 (trigger No 1213095,23h 25m 54.24s , -55d 07m 55.2s, R=0.05) errorbox  26 sec after notice time and 47 sec after trigger time at 2024-02-05 22:13:54 UT, with upper limit up to  15.9 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 86 deg. The sun  altitude  is -41.1 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -58 deg., longitude l = 326 deg.
