    Well actually, the reason why the perspective doesn’t change, is cuz it’s a long rock. It’s like a telescope. It would be more impressive if you could see things up close, but far away without a long rock attached to you.

    A piece of selenite in direct contact with an image sensor (digital or film) would make an interesting camera.

    If we had multiple, stacked thin tubes the have light absorbing walls. This would act like selenite. Think of a similar set up to laminar flow but for light.
