Tintin was on his way to the market and this time he found an antique telescope, he was thunderstruck by the beauty and uniqueness of the telescope, it had a royal touch and feel. Tintin purchased the telescope and went home. He felt as if someone followed him but he ignored this...


When he reached home, he saw the telescope was mysterious and seemed to have some hidden story behind. He turned the telescope and kept on his left eye and saw through the window to see the distant view the telescope showed! He was viewing the birds flying in the sky but this wasn't any ordinary telescope, it had a magical view. Tintin could see even the lightest of the lightest thing clearly. Suddenly the telescope slipped from his hand and fell onto the ground and Tintin rotated the telescope and what he saw was the telescope had a special container inside, which was hidden.


Tintin was curious and he managed to unlock but just then his doorbell rang and it was a delivery man who had a parcel for him, and when Tintin returned back, he saw the telescope was missing. He was surprised and he opened the parcel to know what was inside because he never ordered anything. He opened and saw that there was an expensive telescope with a letter inside which read, "Dear boy, I have heard a lot about you and I also heard that you're expert in unlocking and exploring antique things. Thanks for opening the hidden container of the telescope and yes please keep this telescope with you as a gift!" Tintin didn't know who was the man and why did he want that telescope which was old and what was in the container...


Tintin remembered about the man whom he saw in the market and felt as if he was following him. Tintin had noticed that the man was unable to walk properly because his left leg seemed to have been broken. Tintin knew that the man wouldn't go any far. Tintin ran outside and searched for the man and also found him. He saw the man was entering into an office building. Tintin went inside and saw the man and when the man was busy opening his cabin, Tintin silently took the telescope and ran home and closed the door. He saw that the container was empty and had nothing, he knew the man had already taken it. He investigated the telescope and found a message carved on the telescope as "The one reading this, please save the treasure. It's not mine or yours, it belongs to the children of the orphan. Please help."


Tintin understood that the container had the map to the treasure. He went back to the office but couldn't find the man. Tintin went to the market from where he bought the telescope and got to know about the man. The man was a businessman and would always visit the market and ask about the telescope but never bought and he also got to know that the telescope belonged to a man called James who lived in the Southeast part of the country and died in an accident and also owns an orphanage...


Tintin knew what he had to do, he went in search of that place and started to find clues about the treasure and he got a hint carved on the wall directing him to the manhole. He went in and saw that the man was already there before him. Tintin tried finding the next clue but the man already knew the route, so Tintin just followed him and finally, they reached. The man wasn't aware of Tintin following him and he laughed and started to dig the ground. Tintin held him by his collar and pushed him and started digging. The man and Tintin entered into a fight but the man somehow escaped and dug out the treasure. Tintin knew that he had hurt in his left leg and so he beat him there and the man collapsed on the floor. Tintin asked the police to take him, the man said that he knew about the telescope because he was the one who killed James for the treasure...Tintin gave the treasure to the orphanage as suggested by the message of the telescope.
