Good night despite a couple of minor problems and humidity being a little high in the morning. We managed to observe some high and low priority targets, highlight was a P0 being observed that also had concurrent MeerKAT and NICER observations.

Science data taken for:
2018-2-LSP-001 P0 RSS (x3) (Observing optical counterparts of transient objects)
2020-1-MLT-001 P1 RSS (M-sigma relation for a low mass AGNs)
2019-1-MLT-003 P1 HRS (A SALT survey of chemically-peculiar hot subdwarfs.)
2020-1-COM-001 P1 RSS (Getting an estimate of the polarization crosstalk will be the main focus of this proposal.)
2018-1-MLT-003 P2 RSS (Spectral study of starforming rings in S0 galaxies)
2019-2-MLT-004 P2 RSS (Monitoring the line emission in Southern Galactic Be/X-ray binaries)
