It doesn't seem to matter how often I read the books, I always come away with something new.

I'm presently proof-reading 'Great Northern?' for The Faded Page (where most of the AR novels are now available for free download), and I've just noticed a sketch of binoculars as a chapter-break, presumably binoculars from the Sea Bear. Their focussing knob is at the forward end of the glasses, not near the eye-pieces where it has always been in any binoculars I've ever seen. Surely they didn't work by moving the objective lenses, instead of the eye-pieces? Can anyone shed any light on the construction of this particular instrument please?
