Asterfete had a remarkable talent for noticing divination sensors, and got rather tired of being spied upon. When rude gestures, swearing, lies, and even terrible music, failed to stop them, he decided he needed a way to discover who was sending them. The result taught him to be careful when looking back at those who watch, because they often don't wear much in the way of clothes while they're peeping and most of them really should.
You establish a mental connection with any divination sensor within range that you are aware of (generally as the result of a DC 20 Intelligence check). When you establish this connection, you make an opposed caster level check against the sensor's creator. If you succeed, you may treat their scrying surface as if it were your own scrying sensor. Any capabilities that the sensor has, such as visual or audio transmission, you also gain through your connection with the scrying surface treated as a sensor. As with other scrying spells and effects, any spell that targets you to improve your senses (as opposed to emanates from you) works normally through this connection.
If you fail the caster level check by less than 5 points, you succeed in connecting with the scrying surface, but the sensor's creator is aware of the connection. They may block the return connection and grant you no information. They may also elect to continue their divination, and possibly hold a conversation with you if audio would be passed.
If you fail the caster level check by more than 5 points, you get no information at all. The sensor's creator is aware of the attempt, however, and may end the spell if they desire.
Material: A mirror of any size, in which the sensor can be glanced.
