     "Grandfather, what do you mean? Are you suggesting this telescope is magical or something?"

     He shook his head. "No, but remember what Walt Disney once quoted-It's kind of fun to do the impossible."

    "I don't understand. Isn't that just to tell where the telescope was made?" I asked.

     "Nope. Not even close. You will understand one day. Just remember, it's kind of fun to do the impossible." He replied.

This was a wonderful coming-of-age-esque story with something impossible about it - which was kind of fun ;) Very well written.

This was a lovely way to start the story. I could really feel your MC's fondness for their grandfather.
