Long-distance surveillance

A Telescope is a Tau'ri long-distance surveillance technology.

Overview

Some telescopes are capable of viewing objects far out into space. (SG1: "Children of the Gods") Telescopes can have a hydrogen-alpha solar filter that allows it to observe a close star. (SG1: "1969")

History

A telescope was placed on the observation deck on Destiny. (SGU: "Space") In 1969 Jack O'Neill and Teal'c used a telescope at Gordon MacMillan Southam Observatory to observe a Solar flare. (SG1: "1969") Elizabeth Weir wanted to be an astronaut when she was younger and at her 12th birthday, her parents gave her a telescope. (SGA: "The Real World") O'Neill had a telescope on his roof. (SG1: "Children of the Gods") A large telescope was in the Douglas McLean Memorial Observatory on Hanka as part of Project 169 to observe a nearby black hole during an eclipse. (SG1: "Singularity") After two objects had been detected moving past Saturn, NASA directed Hubble to get a look at them. (SG1: "Within the Serpent's Grasp") An amateur astronomer used a small telescope to discover an asteroid that was heading towards Earth. (SG1: "Fail Safe") Carter used a telescope to try to see a luminous layer of ionised gas around a dying core of a planetary body. (SG1: "Forsaken")
