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

Another very productive night given the terrible weather we had. High humidity closed us for a few hours, but we could reopen and observe through some thick cloud. A mix of high and low priority blocks observed.

Science data taken for:
2018-2-MLT-005 P1 RSS (Probing the winds from massive binary star supernova progenitors)
2020-1-MLT-008 P2 RSS (x4) (Obtaining redshifts for G4Jy sources - the brightest radio galaxies in the southern sky)
2018-1-MLT-002 P2 HRS (Longterm observations of a Be XRB)
2018-2-LSP-001 P2 HRS (Observing optical counterparts of transient objects)
2021-1-SCI-013 P2 HRS (x4) (Constraining the nature of companions in massive single-lined spectroscopic binaries)
2021-1-SCI-033 P2 HRS (Tracing the trajectory of a bright binary star system)
2021-1-SCI-009 P3 HRS (Spectroscopically observing a pulsating star to form a RV curve @Simon_Ebo)
2021-1-SCI-007 P3 HRS (x2) (Probing the binarity of a sample of galactic proto-planetary nebulae)
2021-1-MLT-004 P4 HRS (Long term programme: searching for new chemically peculiar stars in the southern hemisphere)
2020-1-MLT-002 P4 HRS (HRS study of long-period eclipsing binaries)
