Summary
------------------------------------------------------------------------

We battled through bad and variable seeing until around midnight, completing some high priority blocks. A triple blow shortly after midnight was too much for us to continue: The seeing went from bad to terrible, we suffered a fibre outage and were finally closed by weather.

Science data taken for:
2020-2-MLT-009 P1 HRS (Spectroscopic monitoring of candidate white dwarf + Be star binaries.)
2020-1-MLT-002 P1 HRS (HRS study of long-period eclipsing binaries)
2020-2-SCI-042 P1 RSS (Finding young stars and their planets)
2018-2-LSP-001 P2 RSS (Observing optical counterparts of transient objects)
2020-2-SCI-011 P2 HRS (Measuring the orbits of double white dwarfs. @_sublunar_)
