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

A productive night despite some thick clouds through much of the night. We lost some time at the start, but had good seeing and completed 24 blocks, mostly lower priority due to the bright moon and clouds.

Science data taken for:
2019-1-MLT-003 P2 RSS (x5) (A SALT survey of chemically-peculiar hot subdwarfs.)
2020-1-MLT-003 P2 HRS (Spectroscopic observations of central stars of mid-infrared nebulae)
2020-1-SCI-032 P2 HRS (Global parameters of massive stars)
2018-2-MLT-005 P3 RSS (Probing the winds from massive binary star supernova progenitors)
2020-1-SCI-021 P3 HRS (x4) (Constraining stellar parameters of Galactic and SMC massive binaries)
2019-2-SCI-006 P3 HRS (x2) (Investigating the multiplicity of WR stars)
2020-1-SCI-023 P3 HRS (x4) (Probing the binarity of a sample of galactic proto-planetary nebulae)
2019-2-MLT-004 P3 RSS (x3) (Monitoring the line emission in Southern Galactic Be/X-ray binaries)
2020-1-SCI-008 P4 HRS (Searching for dormant black holes in binary systems)
2020-1-SCI-012 P4 HRS (Chemically peculiar Am stars observed by TESS satellite on the southern sky.)
