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

The combination of bright moon and thick cloud cover meant we were mostly restricted to observing bright HRS targets and lower priority blocks. Despite this, a total of 23 blocks were observed with very little weather downtime.

Science data taken for:
2020-1-MLT-002 P1 HRS (x2) (HRS study of long-period eclipsing binaries)
2021-1-SCI-014 P2 HRS (x2) (Monitoring of Luminous Blue Variables)
2021-1-SCI-013 P2 HRS (x9) (Constraining the nature of companions in massive single-lined spectroscopic binaries)
2021-1-SCI-009 P3 HRS (Spectroscopically observing a pulsating star to form a RV curve @Simon_Ebo)
2018-2-MLT-003 P3 RSS (Looking at chromospheric emission in stars which host exoplanets)
2021-1-SCI-015 P3 HRS (x2) (Measuring the orbits of double white dwarfs. @_sublunar_)
2021-1-SCI-011 P3 HRS (x2) (High-Velocity Interstellar Absorptions)
2021-1-SCI-007 P3 HRS (x4) (Probing the binarity of a sample of galactic proto-planetary nebulae)
