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 240629A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 36786) errorbox  3278 sec after notice time and 3311 sec after trigger time at 2024-06-29 17:49:04 UT, with upper limit up to  15.4 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 80 deg. The sun  altitude  is -25.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -41 deg., longitude l =  4 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
