SA: Encarni
SO: Veronica
Others: Kai, Mike Shara. Marissa to help with BVIT observations. Thabelo for the power-cut rescue..


Beautiful clear skies at sunset, cloudy shortly after for about 1 hour and then beautiful, good seeing, dark skies Unfortunately a power cut at ~4am caused some technical problems and we were unable to continue.

Took some telescope throughput measurements, some commissioning observations and science data for:

2015-1-SCI-061 P1 SCAM (Perform a high- cadence imaging survey of stars in NGC-2808)
2015-1-SCI-012 P1 RSS (Searching for high redshift quasars for the MeerKAT Absorption Line Survey (MALS))
2015-1-SCI-009 P1 HRS (x3) (Pulsations of the Extreme Helium Star BX Cir)
2015-1-COM-001 P1 BVIT (SALT dome seeing measurement.)
2015-1-SCI-064 P3 HRS (Determining the rotation rate of O stars in Wolf Rayet/ O star binaries.)
2015-1-MLT-003 P4 RSS (We aim to study a number of candidate ultracool objects, which should include new brown dwarfs.)
