Night Log 2015-07-19

High humidity deterred us from opening until 23:00. Weather-wise it's been an incredibly strange night, characterized by massive and sudden swings in humidity. All sensors on the plateau agreed, so it wasn't the result of a faulty measurement. Finally a sudden increase in humidity (30% in minutes) forced us to close at 03:20. But considering the prediction was that high humidity would keep us closed all night, we were fortunate to have taken data for:

2015-1-DDT-003 P0 RSS (Studying an extremely luminous supernova.)
2015-1-SCI-011 P2 RSS (x2) (Searching the Milky Way for symbiotic stars)
2015-1-SCI-027 P4 RSS (Kinematics of Bulge Miras)
2015-1-MLT-003 P4 RSS (x2) (We aim to study a number of candidate ultracool objects, which should include new brown dwarfs.)
