Networked projects e.g. Gamma-Ray Burst follow up optical observations
require dense worldwide coverage. We are investigating potentially interesting sites for
observatories in Central Asia where coverage by observatories is still poor. One of the
most important parameter of a site is a number of clear night hours. We present first
results of direct parameter measurements gathered with weather stations and our own
observations in different sites of Mongolia.
We present multi-wavelength observations of the dark GRB 051008. The burst was not
detected in the optical bands, however we discover the host galaxy and secured the
redshift of the host with following campaign of multicolor observations of Shajn, NOT,
Gemini North and Keck telescopes. We provide arguments that the galaxy could be in a
complex of gravitationally bound galaxies. Our investigation of the GRB 051008 also
confirms a tendency of host galaxies of dark bursts to be more dusty.
