telescope came first [In reply to] Can't Post

i dunno overall im not that bothered if they had binoculars or telescopes or things of that nature as they are still relatively simplistic in relation to things we have today.

At the same time i just feel there is no reason to add them as overall it doesnt really add to the story or anything - as a prop i guess its ok.

i had a better post to reply to this but my internet cut out the exact second i tried to post it and it got deleted, so this one will have to do, Tongue

telescopes [In reply to] Can't Post

All you need for a telescope are two convex lenses with different focal lengths.

Binoculars are basically a pair of telescopes folded up using totally internally reflecting prisms, and additional lenses to turn the image the right way up.

The technology is exactly the same, but the engineering is rather more complex.

If Leonado Da Vinci had been born 100 years later and known Galileo, we would have had binoculars in the 17th century.

A Far Dragon is the best kind...
