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

A good night of observing. Some time was used at the start of the night to improve the pointing and some time was lost to bad, variable seeing. Luckily it improved again, allowing us to return to higher priority targets.

Science data taken for:
2020-2-DDT-002 P0 HRS (Studying how the optical properties of a blue supergiant varies with time)
2018-1-MLT-004 P1 RSS (Dark energy and the expansion rate of the Universe from quasar monitoring.)
2020-2-SCI-019 P1 RSS (Galaxies responsible for ultrastrong MgII absorption.)
2018-1-MLT-002 P1 HRS (Longterm observations of a Be XRB)
2020-2-SCI-030 P2 RSS (Identifying which heluum-rich hot subdwarfs are binaries)
2020-2-MLT-004 P2 RSS (x2) (Population study of stellar rotation rates in open clusters)
2020-2-MLT-003 P3 HRS (Follow-up of rare SB4 discovered in Gaia-ESO, GALAH and APOGEE)
2020-2-SCI-018 P4 HRS (Understanding the nucloesynthesis of heavy elements)
