Alternative to "Looking glass"

The city write ups for Ken Writes About Stuff are titled "looking glass: city name". I don't think the term "looking glass" is appropriate, because a "looking glass" is a mirror, not a magnifying glass. At least, that's what I've always understood (as in "Alice's adventures through the looking-glass") and the dictionary seems to agree with me here.

How about the old-fashioned term for "telescope" instead: "spyglass"!
