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 240511A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 36428) errorbox  24509 sec after notice time and 24543 sec after trigger time at 2024-05-12 00:55:23 UT, with upper limit up to  18.0 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 79 deg. The sun  altitude  is -55.5 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -44 deg., longitude l = 70 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
