telescope - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Brass and silver, beautiful instrument, sharp focus, spyglass.
The telescope was the wonder of the kingdom. With it the enemy could be seen advancing over the waves long before we could be spotted. It gave us the strategic edge we needed to dominate the region and grow rich. We kept our scientists well fed and happy, while they made their instruments to gaze at the stars, we watched eagerly for a device that would allow us to see even further. We gave them the best metals and the finest glass. We put our most skilled craftsmen at their disposal and sat back to reap the rewards of their cleverness.
