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

A clear and productive but very windy night - we had to wait until 20:45, when the wind went down below the limits, to be able to open - and even then, we spent all night hovering around the limits (but not over).

Science data taken for:

2020-1-SCI-034 P2 RSS (SAGA Survey)
2020-1-SCI-010 P2 RSS (Galaxies responsible for ultrastrong MgII absorption.)
2020-1-MLT-006 P3 RSS (Measuring the rotation speed of the most massive, giant super spirals)
2020-1-SCI-023 P3 HRS (x2) (Probing the binarity of a sample of galactic proto-planetary nebulae)
