Astronomical Telescopes

A telescope is an optical instrument that uses lenses, curved mirrors, or a combination of both to observe distant objects or to observe distant objects by their emission, absorption, or reflection of electromagnetic radiation. The first made telescopes were refracting telescopes. They were used for both terrestrial applications and astronomy and the 2nd was the reflecting telescope, which uses mirrors to collect and focus light, was invented within a few decades of the first refracting telescope.

The word telescope basically refers to a wide range of instruments capable of detecting different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum and in some cases other types of detectors.
