I always see behind the scenes of movies....and i always see those directors having a kind of device like a 'telescope' (small or big ones)
and some look like a 'gun' with two handles.... i think they are checking or measuring on something...

i'm kinda curious with that thing... does anyone know the proper name of that device?

Thanks :)

It's called a Director's Finder!
