High humidity delayed the start of the night, but we managed to observe for the rest of the evening. We observed a wide range of priorities including a DDT and a P0 observation. Poor seeing meant we were limited to lower priority targets towards the end of the night.

Science data taken for:
2020-1-SCI-029 P0 RSS (Spectroscopy of Supernovae)
2020-1-DDT-003 P0 HRS (Radial velocity solution using HRS observations of HMXB )
2020-1-SCI-020 P1 HRS (Studies of new heart-beating stars.)
2020-1-MLT-002 P2 HRS (HRS study of long-period eclipsing binaries)
2020-1-SCI-011 P2 RSS (Probing the quasar outflows.)
2020-1-SCI-032 P2 HRS (Global parameters of massive stars)
2019-2-SCI-006 P3 HRS (x2) (Investigating the multiplicity of WR stars)
2020-1-MLT-003 P3 HRS (Spectroscopic observations of central stars of mid-infrared nebulae)
2020-1-SCI-023 P3 HRS (x3) (Probing the binarity of a sample of galactic proto-planetary nebulae)
2019-2-SCI-031 P4 HRS (x2) (Study of RV Tauri stars without a circumbinary disc.)
