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

A productive night, during which we finished the engineering tests on one of the instrument, we could do some science, including an observation of a target that was 10 magnitude brighter than a few days ago, which is an increase by a factor of 10000.
then the weather forced us to close.

Science data taken for:
2016-2-LSP-001 P0 HRS (x2) (Observing optical counterparts of transient objects)
2017-2-DDT-004 P1 HRS (The transient ASASSN-18fv)
2017-1-MLT-010 P2 HRS (Searching for evolved binary stars with long orbital periods)
2017-2-MLT-006 P2 HRS (x3) (Studying the composition of Binary stars to estimate their ages)
2017-2-SCI-017 P2 HRS (HRS observations of symbiotic stars)
2017-2-SCI-045 P3 SCAM (Confirmation and redshift determination of galaxy clusters.)
