In this talk I present ongoing work about a peculiar modification of the relative entropy which I coined the telescoped relative entropy. I will explain the name, and highlight its many interesting properties. Of course, I will also have to explain where it comes from, and what it is good for, and I will do so by showing how this telescope can be used in the quantification of read-out uncertainties of cuckoo clocks and in Hamiltonian estimation of unitarily evolving quantum systems. Ultimately, I will show that a curious conjecture about the telescoped relative entropy would solve a problem posed by Kitaev and Bravyi.
