MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) started inspect of the Fermi GRB240628.82 (trigger No 741296200,13h 14m 40.80s , -30d 18m 00.0s, R=17.72) errorbox  363 sec after notice time and 373 sec after trigger time at 2024-06-28 19:42:49 UT, with upper limit up to  16.1 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 20 deg. The sun  altitude  is -49.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 32 deg., longitude l = 310 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
