Telescope, 024

The word 'telescope' comes from the original Greek 'tele' meaning 'far' and 'skopein' meaning 'to look or see', in other words an instrument to 'see far'. Telescopes assist in the observation of remote objects by gathering and focusing visible light with the help of a lens or a mirror in order to give a strengthened and enlarged view of the object. This telescope was used on the ? expedition.

"Victory awaits him, who has everything in order - luck we call it.  Defeat is definitely due for him, who has neglected to take the necessary precautions - bad luck we call it"

Roald Amundsen
