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) was pointed to the Swift GRB240305.16 (trigger No 1218696,15h 18m 49.20s , -57d 20m 45.6s, R=0.05) errorbox  73468 sec after notice time and 73641 sec after trigger time at 2024-03-06 00:13:52 UT, with upper limit up to  19.7 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 37 deg. The sun  altitude  is -47.3 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -0 deg., longitude l = 322 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
