MASTER-Amur robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Blagoveshchensk State Pedagogical University) started inspect of the Fermi GRB240512.62 (trigger No 737218721,09h 46m 28.80s , +36d 21m 00.0s, R=5.41) errorbox  154 sec after notice time and 189 sec after trigger time at 2024-05-12 15:01:45 UT, with upper limit up to  17.7 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 54 deg. The sun  altitude  is -21.5 deg. 

MASTER-Tunka robotic telescope  located in Russia (Applied Physics Institute, Irkutsk State University) started inspect of the Fermi GRB240512.62 errorbox  4691 sec after notice time and 4726 sec after trigger time at 2024-05-12 16:17:22 UT, with upper limit up to  13.6 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 51 deg. The sun  altitude  is -20.0 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 51 deg., longitude l = 188 deg.
