A frustrating night with poor and variable seeing and high humidity. Some low priority blocks done before we closed due to weather.

On a good note: Stephen did a successful guider pre-positioning test during twilight.

2018-2-LSP-001 P3 HRS (Observing optical counterparts of transient objects)
2020-1-SCI-023 P3 HRS (x2) (Probing the binarity of a sample of galactic proto-planetary nebulae)
