Trouble free night.
We started with some tests for the system that will keep the shape of the mirror throughout the night.
Then we could do some science observations, but towards the end of the night, we had to close because of the rising humidity.

Data taken for :
2014-2-SCI-060 P3 RSS (Searching for binaries in unusual central stars of planetary nebulae)
2014-2-MLT-003 P4 RSS (Study, and detailed classification, of a number of proposed very cool astronomical objects)
