 A sailor would have navigated the ocean easily using this cane that reassembles into a telescope with tripod stand. Necessary navigation instruments, including a wind gauge that attaches to the top of the telescope, a compass and writing instruments, are conveniently held within the shaft.

Telescopes were not only functional instruments of necessity while at sea, but were also a symbol of honor for captains, admirals, and respected officers. The telescope was a necessity that allowed mariners to do practically everything: navigate, communicate with other vessels (via a system of flag signals with other boats), find their proper harbor, and even identify whether a ship in the distance was friend or foe.
