My entry for the OUT OF THIS WORLD SPACE BUILDS! contest on LEGO IDEAS : https://ideas.lego.com/s/ca:e3ceea30d21341018f84de7b9e25ab8a

I had that crazy idea of making a functioning telescope, with a light brick illuminating a decorated panel to make as if you could see planets and stars.

While its parts count falls within the limits of the contest, I don't except the model to win due to the sheer size and the lack of minifigures. Still, it was a fun model to build.

The custom prints - which represent a galaxy, the Galilean Moons and the Moon as a nod to Galileo Galilei's observations with the very first telescopes he made, and Bara Magna, Aqua Magna and Bota Magna as a reference to the BIONICLE universe - were made by my good friend Thi.
