I don't think that's permitted. ;)
heh, this is probably the joke section , so dont need to take things too seriously. NASA is currently having their SOFIA ( Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy ) telescope project , which has a scope attached to an aeroplane flying in the stratosphere region.

Yeah, I have heard about it. There is also the Kuiper Airborne Observatory (KAO) which is a predecessor to SOFIA. Pretty cool that a Boeing 747SP is used for the SOFIA project. Maybe future airborne observatory platform candidates like the Boeing 777 or Airbus 380 should be considered too. :lol: :D

Haha! :lol: :lol: I don't think a Deep Sky person would use that! Its only a blurry 8x22mm f/3.7 monocular. A deepsky fellow would not even use a 10x25 bino, even though it is better! Nice try, Arief! :P

111. You asked for a fully multi-coated window seat when booking your air ticket.

112. Your star chart start from magnitude 12.

113. You own only 4" eyepieces.

114. You thought the objective of an FS-102 is an eyepiece.

115. You can't find any telescopes in a star party and wonder why everyone was using a finderscope for observation.

116. You use galaxy hopping to find your target.
Haha.. good ones Weixing! I like 111.
