    This is not even your first telescope- both are periscopes. If you check out the other instructibles you might learn what one is. This neither gathers more light than the naked eye, nor does it provide magnification.

    If it's flat then this isn't a (reflecting) telescope. (see georgeATM's comment)

    Telescopes require at least one curved mirror to achieve magnification and/or light gathering power. Wouldn't this be more accurately classified as a periscope?
