A fabulous clear night with stable 1.5-1.7" seeing, occasionally even better.
No problems either until 4 am, when lost some time to tech issues but could
still continue observing until dawn. Science data gathered for:

2015-1-SCI-063 P0 RSS (SALT follow-up of type Ia supernovae to study their properties at targeted redshifts)
2015-1-SCI-065 P1 RSS (FP Halpha kinematics of RESOLVE galaxies)
2015-1-SCI-013 P1 HRS (x3) (Evolved binaries in the Magellanic Clouds )
2015-1-SCI-056 P2 RSS (x2) (Watching Pluto for changes in its spectrum as it rotates.)
2015-1-SCI-005 P3 RSS (Time variability of emerging BAL QSOs.)
2015-1-SCI-036 P3 HRS (Metal abundance of extremely metal poor candidates with high S/N and high resolution spectra.)
2015-1-MLT-002 P3 RSS (Observations of supernovae, near and far.)
2015-1-SCI-017 P3 SCAM (Observations of evolved massive stars revealed with Spitzer and WISE)
2015-1-SCI-046 P3 SCAM (Redshift determination of newly confirmed galaxy clusters)
2015-1-MLT-003 P4 RSS (x2) (Study of a number of candidate ultracool objects, which should include new brown dwarfs.)
