The lenses of the Optistery's telescopes need replacing. It would help out the stargazers astronomically if you could focus on gathering the items they need to repair them.
When you talk to Ropunono he says he thinks his sight is failing, or maybe it's the telescopes. He talks about constellations in the northern skyline and also mentions the materials needed to make 'stellar mirrors' are dropped by powerful monsters in the Northlands...
Go to Ranguemont Pass and kill Ahriman type mobs that are near the Beaucedine zone until you get an Ahriman's lens.
Go back to the Ropunono and trade him the lens. Do NOT go straight to the Maze, or you will lose your key and nothing will happen. He will then tell you about a shielding piece. That piece can be found near the Buburimu Penninsula entrance of the Maze of Shakhrami, in the room where Argus spawns (check the nm Argus for exact location). There is a iron door there.
To open the door, you need a rusty key. Rusty key drops fairly often from wights in the Maze.
When inside, there are 3 chests. Use any chest, it doesnt matter. Once you click on the chest, you will be offered the possibility of choosing a shielding piece: something like "the coin shows Shiva to the West, would you like to take this coin?"
The idea is that 99% of pieces in chests are fake. If you bring back a fake peice, you get nothing and have to find another rusty key and do it again. (quite a frustrating experience... trust me)
In order to know if the piece is fake or not, look at the star map before you head out to the Maze, (a npc near Ropunonno will show it to you). It shows the constellations and the direction they are.
Example: you will get 99% of coins saying Shiva pointing to west, and all of those are fake, because Shiva is East. So at some point a coin will be generated that says "Shiva pointing East" that's a real one.
But let's say you are in the room right now and can't go back to Windurst to check the map, generate until you hit one of the following:
Alexander: North-East Ifrit: North-West Leviathan: West Odin: North Shiva: East Titan: South
Return to Ropunono for your reward.
