Telescopes of true vision were incredibly useful magic spyglasses that originated in Zakhara, the Land of Fate.[1]


These spyglasses were cylindrical and often made of precious metal such as gold.[1]


A telescope of true vision provided the mundane ability of magnifying a viewed object by a factor of 50. Thus a ship at sea from 5,000 feet away would appear to be 100 feet away when viewed through the spyglass.[1]

The enchantment upon these spyglasses pierced illusions and other magical misdirection, allowing the viewer to see an object in its true form.[1]

A telescope of true vision had 20 charges. Upon using the last charge the lens would crack and the item would be ruined.[1]
