An astronomer with astrolabe and a telescope
A print after a French 13th century manuscript (now in the Bodleian Library, Oxford). Despite the title given, the man is actually holding a sighting tube rather than a telescope. By the fourth century BC, sighting tubes were known to be of use in observing the stars and planets, since they helped to eliminate extraneous light.
