Saw a movie today called "Street Crimes" starring Dennis Farrino. He and his Blind Daughter had a small refractor on a wooden tripod on their patio. His partner comments on the scope, and he tells him, - Oh Yeah, - it's great, - When the moon is full, you can see forever". Then they go take a peak thru it.

Bollywood.

 

I came across this image while curious searching about telescopes in movies.

The movie is called Mili, a 1975 Indian romantic drama film directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee.

What's surprising though-the prop. Such an unusual choice, especially considering it was filmed in Bombay!

Kind of makes you wonder what he's looking at, in the middle of a well illuminated room.
