A telescope is an optical device consisting of variable combinations of lenses and mirrors that focus light, allowing for viewing of distant objects. Widely used in the fields of astronomy and surveying. Early Human configurations of the telescope were constructed by Galileo Galilei.

Zefram Cochrane used a catadioptric telescope to view the USS Enterprise-E in orbit around Earth in 2063. (Star Trek: First Contact)

Charles Tucker III once viewed a stellar nursery through a telescope located just outside of Anchorage. (ENT: "Fight or Flight") In 2152, when Captain Jonathan Archer spent his shore leave on Risa, he had a date with Keyla on the balcony of his apartment. There he had a telescope and viewed through it until he finally directed Keyla to Earth's sun, which was about 90 light years away. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")

This telescope was later sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. [1]

In 2154, the Syrrannites used telescopes to discover three Vulcan cruisers over the Forge, ready to attack their compound in the T'Karath Sanctuary. (ENT: "Awakening")

The Federation deployed subspace telescopes in remote regions of space, such as the Argus Array. (TNG: "The Nth Degree")

Kamin built a telescope on Kataan that he and his daughter Meribor used often. (TNG: "The Inner Light")

Henry Starling kept a telescope in his office at the Chronowerx Industries tower. (VOY: "Future's End")

Rain Robinson once confessed to Tom Paris that the reason why she became an astronomer was because of her brother, who "had a telescope, a little refractor. You could barely see in the tree house next door actually, but it was enough to see the rings of Saturn." All she ever wanted since was to "reach up and touch them." (VOY: "Future's End, Part II")

In 2376, the starship USS Voyager was spotted by an observatory while trapped in orbit of a planet experiencing the effects of differential space-time. (VOY: "Blink of an Eye")
