    I recall a video of the optic system of one of these existing military systems could read the time on a church clock in Calais from Dover.

    Interesting. Apparently the Optic System of a Canberra Bomber could do something similar.. I recall reading about a test that happened in the South of the UK & (from memory) from the South Coast stuff was read in London.

    It established a World Altitude Record of 70,310' so I suppose from that height it could see great distances. Of course the camera technology would have needed to be fantastic to convert that to hi- res & readable/useable stuff. Now days of course, Satellites are used & from a greater height & the clarity is remarkable & not like a Box Brownie at all.

    Not at all. Guns are pairs. Game birds are a brace. Sometimes on a rough shoot rabbits and hares may be termed a brace,
