Night Log 2015-06-22

Another great night without any problem.
We could observe two high priority programs. One aimed at observing the eclipse of a white dwarf binary. We could observe (and see) the passage of one star behind the other one, resulting in the dimming of the light coming from the unresolved object. the second one was a joint observation of a Black Hole binary, together with the VLT and SWIFT, and X-Ray satellite.
We did some needed HRS calibrations.
Overall, the following 9 programs will get data later today :

2015-1-DDT-002 P0 SCAM (SALT DDT Observation of an unusual eclipsing white dwarf binary)
2014-1-MLT-003 P0 BVIT (Observe the accretion disc as a white dwarf, neutron star or black hole gobbles up a companion.)
2015-1-SCI-068 P1 RSS (Line profile variations in He 1136-2304)
2015-1-SCI-051 P1 RSS (Redshifts of gravitationally lensed arcs in El Gordo)
2015-1-SCI-070 P1 HRS (x2) (High resolution spectroscopic abundance measurements of RGBs in NGC 6681 (M70))
2015-1-SCI-013 P1 HRS (Evolved binaries in the Magellanic Clouds )
2015-1-SCI-012 P2 RSS (x3) (Searching for high redshift quasars for the MeerKAT Absorption Line Survey (MALS))
2015-1-SCI-012 P3 RSS (x2) (Searching for high redshift quasars for the MeerKAT Absorption Line Survey (MALS))
2015-1-SCI-045 P3 RSS (Searching for binaries in unusual central stars of planetary nebulae)
2015-1-MLT-003 P4 RSS (We aim to study a number of candidate ultracool objects, which should include new brown dwarfs.)
