ESP October 16-21, 2017

The observing areas include power for telescopes and equipment, and is organized so that you may drive on-off from the nearby light-shielded parking area at night without impacting the observers on the fields. Please read the Darkout rules!

Our ESP 2017 speaker(s) were Dr C. Renee James (Sam Houston State University) speaking on ‘50 Years of Pulsars – How a Bit of Scruff Changed the Astronomical Game‘ and Dr Don Winget (University of Texas) speaking on ‘Building a Passion for Astronomy: White Dwarfs in HETDEX as a Science, Outreach, Education and Recruiting Opportunity


Doorprizes were awarded on Saturday afternoon (must be present to win). Please thank these generous ESP 2017 vendors.
If you are a vendor, find out about donating doorprizes  to ESP!

Vendors are welcome to set up adjacent to the observing field and are allowed one sign/banner for advertising.

Enjoy this year’s telescope and binocular observing programs in the ESP Observing Programs and Archive!
