Telescope - TEPBC - Round #2
Eh, they work better at night...
About this creation
Hey all!
Here's my entry for Round #2 of TEPBC 2019. I briefly considered just adding the old dude with the telescope and then realized that I had time and hadn't done a castle-themed build in a long while. Call it an excuse to brick more, if you will...

Anyway, my entry is the telescope itself (see the last few images), but I wanted to set the scene and show off some of the golden-colored elements that I'd received in my last Ebay bulk order (in which I also got this wizardly old gentleman). Really liked the domed ceiling effect, even though the walls were a bit rushed.





You'll find the usual bric-a-brac typically of an eccentric magic enthusiast. Most people just call it clutter, but I'm not going to argue with anyone who might possibly be able to turn me into a toad. Which reminds me that this would have been a good opportunity to bring in my froggy friend after a long sabbatical. Ah well, I've already taken the pictures, so it's no longer an option...




Close up of the table. He's been comparing charts recently.



The overall build. Again, not the best that I've made in this genre, but like I said, I needed the excuse to spend a bit more time with the Lego collection.



Here's a better shot of just the telescope and its operator. Nothing too crazy awesome, but it still took me something like 30 minutes to figure out exactly what pieces to use.



And another one.



Them's just 8 pieces. If I'm going to win (*choke/cough*), I might as well do it fairly.



Over and out. I've got three other 8-piece builds together in case time doesn't present itself for any more bricking in the next couple of week. Things are busy, busy, busy.

God bless,
~Promar~

Awesome job! I love the interior details, especially the stone with wooden beams, rafters, and arches. Nice mix of "natural" building materials. I love the subject too. There's nothing like looking a Saturn through a telescope, or the moons of Jupiter. Space is amazing.

Quoting Winn Jetbrick Looking good. Nice to see you around. I personally am unfortunately unable to build for a while while Iím away from my collection for a while but itís cool to see what others are building, especially those I have been following for a long time.
Hey Winn! How goes everything with you? It's been a while... Thanks for stopping by to say hello :) See you around, ~Promar~

A pretty clever creation which for sure resembles a telescope. The room you built for placing your eight pieces creation properly turned out very nice too. Great work!

The use of pieces here is both intuitive and surprising; I especially like the way the supporting rod attaches to the base. Don't sell yourself too short :)

That's an awesome design for a telescope! I like the surrounding MOC as well! Great work!
