The brass spyglass telescope works by gathering light and sending itto a lens much as your own eye gathers light and sends a picture to yourbrain. Using various tube lengths, lenses, and mirrors, the brassnautical telescope comes in many sizes, capable of magnification by afew degrees to seeing vast distances in outer space. As the brassnautical telescope gathers light in order to present a clear, conciseimage, the larger the lens or mirror where the light is gathered, themore defined and detailed the image it will give. Light enters throughthe primary lens, is bent to a single focal point, and from there isabsorbed by the lens of the eyepiece and magnified for your view. Theprimary lens does not change the image size, rather it is the lens orlenses of the eyepiece that produce the magnifying effect. Combining thedetail gathering primary lens and the magnifying eyepiece lens, aclear, large image is produced. It is this combination of the focallength of the objective lens, or the length at which the light isfocused to a point, and the eyepiece that create a basic brass nauticaltelescope. The classic ship telescope was a revolution in sailing, allowing sailors to see far off lands, more easily chart stars andcreate maps, and signal or fire upon other ships in the sea.
