Fort Bragg Engineers stationed in Afghanistan.
They just picked up an 8" SCT with goto - they say they are at 4800 ft and it is clear and dark.
In their own words:
"Our pleasure. Is this telescope in stock, Herb?
We will be here for another 4 months, at least. We are at about 4800
here in Bagram, and it is very dark as well - the Afghanis don't have
lights! It should be a great place to look at stars - and a good
well. There are several of us interested in astronomy; we're from Ft
NC and it's too light and too humid there to see much...
Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks again.
I asked if they would let me post their picture here so we could all see them and they agreed.
I think I speak for all of here back home - THANK YOU FELLAS and come home safe!!
