A rather interesting night with loadshedding in Sutherland and here at home and having to use my phone as the connection to the telescopes. Managed to get some high priority blocks done through it all with very little downtime in the end.

Science data taken for:
2018-2-LSP-001 P0 RSS (Observing optical counterparts of transient objects)
2021-1-MLT-005 P1 HRS (x2) (Tracing the history of extreme helium stars)
2021-1-SCI-018 P1 RSS (Spectroscopic identification of ultra compact binary candidates)
2021-1-SCI-027 P1 RSS (x2) (Monitoring spectropolarimetric behavior of blazars)
2021-1-SCI-024 P1 HRS (Tracing variations in three massive young stellar objects in M17)
2021-1-SCI-006 P1 RSS (Galaxies responsible for ultrastrong MgII absorption.)
2021-1-SCI-004 P2 HRS (Investigation of variability of absorption lines due to ISM towards vela SNR. )
2020-1-MLT-008 P2 RSS (Obtaining redshifts for G4Jy sources - the brightest radio galaxies in the southern sky)
2019-1-MLT-008 P2 HRS (HRS monitoring of yellow symbiotic systems)
