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

A clear night with rather horrendous seeing. Some technical issues at the beginning of the night and having to close at ~1:20am to high relative humidity seemed such a sad ending to our observing week... but then, we opened again at 3am to awesome seeing and clear skies! A much better ending for our week! :)

Science data taken for:
