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

The night was mostly clear, and despite some variable seeing we managed to observe many blocks of mixed priorities until we closed due to strong winds.

Science data taken for:
2020-1-MLT-002 P1 HRS (HRS study of long-period eclipsing binaries)
2021-1-SCI-013 P2 HRS (x2) (Constraining the nature of companions in massive single-lined spectroscopic binaries)
2019-2-MLT-004 P2 HRS (Monitoring the line emission in Southern Galactic Be/X-ray binaries)
2020-2-MLT-009 P2 HRS (Spectroscopic monitoring of candidate white dwarf + Be star binaries.)
2020-1-MLT-008 P2 RSS (x5) (Obtaining redshifts for G4Jy sources - the brightest radio galaxies in the southern sky)
2021-1-SCI-005 P3 RSS (x2) (Probing the quasar outflows.)
2021-1-MLT-005 P3 RSS (Tracing the history of extreme helium stars)
2018-2-MLT-005 P3 RSS (Probing the winds from massive binary star supernova progenitors)
