A telescope is an optical device consisting of variable combinations of lenses and mirrors that focus light, allowing for viewing of distant objects. Widely used in the fields of astronomy and surveying. Early Human configurations of the telescope were constructed by Galileo Galilei.
Charles Tucker III once viewed a stellar nursery through a telescope located just outside of Anchorage. (ENT: "Fight or Flight") In 2152, when Captain Jonathan Archer spent his shore leave on Risa, he had a date with Keyla Terrana on the balcony of his apartment. There he had a telescope and viewed through it until he finally directed Keyla to Earth's sun, which was about 90 light years away. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")
Rain Robinson once confessed to Tom Paris that the reason why she became an astronomer was because of her brother, who "had a telescope, a little refractor. You could barely see in the tree house next door actually, but it was enough to see the rings of Saturn." All she ever wanted since was to "reach up and touch them." (VOY: "Future's End, Part II")
