00:40 UT: follow up of AT2016iks, gr11+gr16+flat (we started before twilight ended)

02:03 UT: Standard star vma2

02:35 UT: refocusing

02:40 UT: Follow up of AT2016hmq (2x1800s), seeing ~1", humidity 50%, windstill

03:52 UT: Follow up of SN2016ipf (g11+g16), seeing still ~1", humidity 55%, wind 2.2m/s
