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 GRB240417.97 (trigger No 735089036,02h 10m 19.92s , -03d 31m 58.8s, R=21.22) errorbox  63251 sec after notice time and 63285 sec after trigger time at 2024-04-18 16:58:36 UT, with upper limit up to  17.0 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 71 deg. The sun  altitude  is -10.2 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -59 deg., longitude l = 166 deg.
