Started with SOFI
22:44    Flux std, EG274
23:06    Image Analysis
23:31    SN2016adj (follow-up):
            Observed JHK imaging, BG+RG spectrum. Replaces previous out of focus data.
23:37    End of Twilight
01:00    Telluric HIP68867
01:25    Switched to EFOSC
01:33    Standard EG131 and Image analysis
02:05    AT2016eqg (classification):
            Observed Gr13, 600s, slit 1.0". Not SN, balmer lines at z=0
02:25    AT2016esk (classification):
            Attempted, nothing at target position, transient vanished
02:39    Gaia16axp (classification):
            Observed Gr13, 300s, slit 1.0". Not SN, Ha and Hb at z=0. source towards gal centre
02:50    AT2016eny (classification):
Observed, Gr13 600s, slit 1.0". Ia about a week past max
PS16drf (classification):
            Observed Gr13 900 slit 1.0". Ia spectrum, but with H emission line with P cygni profile.
03:32    AT2016enl (classification):
            Observed Gr13, 900s, 1.0". Spectrum too noisy for clear classification, came back.
03:55    PS16dqz (classification):#
Observed Gr13, 1500, slit 1.0". Noisy spectrum. Likely Ha emission at z=0 so probably not SN
04:31    PS16dqv (classification):
Observed Gr13, 1500, slit 1.0". Type II, broad H emission with P cygni. Potential IIb?
AT2016enl (classification):
            Observed Gr13, 1800s, slit 1.0". Still not sure of classification.
05:41    SN2016enp (follow-up):
            Observed Gr11+16, 1800s, slit 1.0"
07:07    SN2016ado (follow-up):
            Could not see object for acquisition, too faint
07:17    AT2016eij (classification):
            Observed Gr13, 600s, slit 1.0". Ia, 2 weeks post max
07:34    PS16drm (classification):
            Observed Gr13, 600s, slit 1.0". Ia, 6-10 days post max
07:57    AT2016eso (classification):
            Observed Gr13, 300s, slit 1.0". Type II, blue continuum with narrow balmer sequence in emission. IIn? Returning for Gr11
08:10    AT2016emx (classification):
            Observer Gr13, 900s, slit 1.0".
Ia, a few days post max
08:25    AT2016eso (follow-up on classification):
            Observed Gr11+16, 1500s, slit 1.0¨. See above
09:35    AT2016emr (classification):
            Observed Gr13, 300s, slit 1.0". Ia 4-7 days post max
09:45    AT2016ejf (classification):
            Observed Gr13 900s, slit 1.0".
Ib/c, post-max
10:00    Beginning of Twilight
10:10    AT2016eqh (classification):
            Observed Gr13, 600s, slit 1.0".
Blue continuum.
10:26    AT2016esi (classification):
            Observed Gr13, 300s, slit 1.0". Noisy spectrum, blue continuum, probable Ha emission at z=0.
