The Bolyens on BBC2 and a telescope in the 1490s??

 If anyone has watched the Boleyns on BBC 2 they would have seen during  episode 1 Thomas Boleyn the father of Anne Bolyen using  a telescope to watch a hawk, OK except that this was in the 1490s over 100 years before the invention of the telescope.!!!!!! 

I am not sure  what references the researchers used.

  1. Probably saw Azeem Edin Bashir Al Bakir played by Morgan Freeman use a very basic one in "Robin Hood Prince of Thieves" and, like the Hadrans Wall scene, thought it must be fact!!
