October, 2019: The SPT-3G camera has nearly completed it's 2019 observing season! Winter-overs Doug Howe and David Riebel have nearly finished a successful 2019 austral-winter observing season at the South Pole! They will continue using SPT-3G to observe the 1500 sq. deg. survey patch for another month, before being relieved by a small austral-summer crew who will perform maintenance and improvements on the telescope and camera.

  The South Pole Telescope is funded through the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy Office of Science. NSF DOE
