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 GRB 240428A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 36338) errorbox  8392 sec after notice time and 8401 sec after trigger time at 2024-04-28 17:22:55 UT, with upper limit up to  18.5 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 65 deg. The sun  altitude  is -17.4 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 75 deg., longitude l = 238 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here: 
https://master.sai.msu.ru/site/master2/observ.php?id=2438479

We obtain a following upper limits.
