    my cousin bought a new apartment and when i visit him i saw he has a telescope.

    He told me he uses it for astrology purpose only. So i tried to use it to look out of the window in random directions where there is nothing blocking the view. I assume that if this telescope can see whats on the moon, with that distance, surely if i am in london and i point the telescope down south horizontally, i suppose i can see random stuff going on in france?

    But no, i cant see anything , its just some blurry image.

    Curvature of the Earth and the horizon, something like that.

    You probably need to focus it
    Maybe it's the wrong way round?

    Because it's white - the snow?

    Telescopes generally work best at night
