Telescopic Sight

A telescopic sight, commonly called a scope, is a sighting device that is based on an optical refracting telescope. They are equipped with some form of graphic image pattern (a reticle) mounted in an optically appropriate position in their optical system to give an accurate aiming point. Telescopic sights are used with all types of systems that require accurate aiming but are most commonly found on guns. Other types of sights are iron sights, reflector (reflex) sights, and laser sights.

Famous quotes containing the word sight:

    a place in the world’s core,
    Where passion grows to be a changeless thing,
    Like charmèd apples made of chrysoprase,
    Or chrysoberyl, or beryl, or chrysolite;
    And there, in juggleries of sight and sense,
    Become one movement, energy, delight....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
