Summary

Thick cloud and high winds prevented us from opening for most of the night. Some tech issues occurred, but were dealt with mostly during weather downtime. We completed 7 blocks of high priority between the bad weather.

Science data taken for:
2021-1-MLT-005 P1 HRS (x2) (Tracing the history of extreme helium stars)
2021-1-SCI-013 P2 HRS (x2) (Constraining the nature of companions in massive single-lined spectroscopic binaries)
2021-1-SCI-014 P2 HRS (Monitoring of Luminous Blue Variables)
2020-1-MLT-008 P2 RSS (x2) (Obtaining redshifts for G4Jy sources - the brightest radio galaxies in the southern sky)
