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

A good night of observing with bright moon and moderate seeing. Unfortunately the RSS shutter had problems again, so we were limited to HRS for the 2nd half of the night. We lost a bit of time to high winds at the start of the night.

Science data taken for:
2019-1-MLT-003 P1 HRS (A SALT survey of chemically-peculiar hot subdwarfs.)
2020-1-MLT-002 P2 HRS (x3) (HRS study of long-period eclipsing binaries)
2018-1-MLT-005 P2 HRS (HRS observations of symbiotic stars)
2020-1-SCI-021 P3 HRS (x4) (Constraining stellar parameters of Galactic and SMC massive binaries)
2019-2-SCI-006 P3 HRS (x4) (Investigating the multiplicity of WR stars)
2020-1-SCI-012 P4 HRS (x3) (Chemically peculiar Am stars observed by TESS satellite on the southern sky.)
2020-1-SCI-023 P4 HRS (x2) (Probing the binarity of a sample of galactic proto-planetary nebulae)
2020-1-SCI-008 P4 HRS (Searching for dormant black holes in binary systems)
2020-1-SCI-014 P4 HRS (x3) (Searching for new chemically peculiar stars in the southern hemisphere.)
2020-1-MLT-003 P4 HRS (Spectroscopic observations of central stars of mid-infrared nebulae)
