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

We managed to observe a few high priority blocks at the start of the night but not have the best of conditions with some clouds and bad seeing. The second half of the night we were closed due to high winds.

Science data taken for:
2020-1-MLT-002 P1 HRS (x2) (HRS study of long-period eclipsing binaries)
2019-2-MLT-001 P1 RSS (Study of polarization in blazars.)
2021-1-MLT-005 P1 HRS (Tracing the history of extreme helium stars)
2018-2-MLT-005 P2 RSS (x2) (Probing the winds from massive binary star supernova progenitors)
2021-1-SCI-033 P2 HRS (Tracing the trajectory of a bright binary star system)
2018-1-MLT-002 P2 HRS (Longterm observations of a Be XRB)
2021-1-SCI-013 P2 HRS (Constraining the nature of companions in massive single-lined spectroscopic binaries)
