On Tuesday the 12th of February 2019 MeerTime recorded data from its first official observing run. The run was an outstanding success with the telescope performing flawlessly. Observers from Australia, South Africa, Germany, Italy and Thailand watched while the first data flowed into our pulsar processor. Within minutes the data were being analysed, and outstanding signal to noise ratios were being achieved. All up we observed 18 sources. Two of the recycled pulsars are shown below, along with the residuals for J1757-5322.
