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

A mixed night with mostly poor seeing conditions, moonlight and thin cloud. We had some internet frustrations with Veronica's connection down for quite a while, but we limped on and observed 9 blocks, mostly of low priority.

Science data taken for:
2020-2-MLT-004 P2 RSS (Population study of stellar rotation rates in open clusters)
2020-1-MLT-008 P3 RSS (x2) (Obtaining redshifts for G4Jy sources - the brightest radio galaxies in the southern sky)
2020-2-SCI-011 P3 HRS (x2) (Measuring the orbits of double white dwarfs. @_sublunar_)
2020-2-SCI-018 P4 HRS (Understanding the nucloesynthesis of heavy elements)
2020-1-MLT-003 P4 HRS (x3) (Spectroscopic observations of central stars of mid-infrared nebulae)
