Hi

Actually, you want a spotting scope - a small telescope designed to be used by day. The word telescope usually refers to something used for astronomy. You can also use observation binoculars.

For the basics on higher power observation instruments, both binoculars and spotting scopes, for horizon watching, spotting ships, distant wildlife and some astronomy, see my article at High Power Observation For Home Or Office, http://www.opticsplanet.com/high-power- ... ffice.html This article also includes recommendations in various price ranges.
