The night started relatively well, but the seeing just got worse and worse from midnight onward and at times was > 5". This resulted in many lower priority blocks observed.

2019-1-LSP-001 P1 RSS (x2) (Tracing the evolution of the most massive galaxies in the universe)
2018-1-MLT-003 P2 RSS (Spectral study of starforming rings in S0 galaxies)
2020-1-MLT-008 P2 RSS (Obtaining redshifts for G4Jy sources - the brightest radio galaxies in the southern sky)
2019-2-SCI-006 P3 HRS (Investigating the multiplicity of WR stars)
2019-2-MLT-004 P3 RSS (x2) (Monitoring the line emission in Southern Galactic Be/X-ray binaries)
