An excellent night, with sub-arcsecond seeing, clear skies and no technical downtime. We were able to complete 10 high priority blocks and some engineering tests in the early evening.

Science data taken for:
2020-1-MLT-005 P1 RSS (Study of extraplanar diffuse ionized gas in moderately inclined galaxies.)
2020-2-DDT-005 P1 RSS (Studying the thermal state of HI 21-cm absorbing gas)
2020-2-MLT-002 P2 RSS (x2) (Spectral study of the outer XUV-disks in S0 galaxies)
2020-2-MLT-005 P2 RSS (Local Volume as a benchmark of the near-field cosmology: study the most isolated galaxy population)
2020-2-SCI-021 P2 RSS (x2) (Study of the properties of green valley galaxies with high star formation rates)
2019-2-MLT-004 P2 HRS (Monitoring the line emission in Southern Galactic Be/X-ray binaries)
2018-1-MLT-002 P2 RSS (Longterm observations of a Be XRB)
2020-2-SCI-019 P2 RSS (Galaxies responsible for ultrastrong MgII absorption.)
