2017-1-MLT-001 P4 HRS (Study of long-period eclipsing binaries)
2017-1-SCI-041 P4 HRS (x2) (HRS spectra to characterize stars that are periodically eclipsed by very low mass stars)
2017-1-MLT-006 P4 RSS (Monitoring the X-ray bright sgB[e] stars in Magellanic Clouds cc. @astro_Liz)
2017-1-SCI-058 P4 HRS (Studying the composition of Binary stars to estimate their ages)
2017-1-SCI-006 P4 HRS (Spectroscopic observations of candidate massive stars associated with mid-infrared nebulae)
