Far-eye

From A Wiki of Ice and Fire

Jump to: navigation, search

A far-eye is a telescope. It consists of a bronze tube with ground glass lenses at either end. The best far-eyes come from Myr and are referred to as Myrish eyes.

Maesters Luwin and Aemon both used far-eyes to observe the stars.[1] Aemon's was mounted on a heavy tripod.[2]

When Victarion Greyjoy captured the Myrish cog Dove, he took its captain's Myrish eye, which was constructed out of a series of interconnected brass tubes so as to be collapsible.[3]
