"Telescopes can be used for studying the night skies and identifying different stars and planets."
—Description[src]

A telescope is a device used for seeing faraway objects.[1] Those used in the wizarding world are presumably magical to some extent, as they can be used to see objects that would be impossible to see with a Muggle telescope.

History

They are essential in Astronomy, and thus all Hogwarts students up to their fifth year (and their sixth and seventh should they choose Astronomy as an elective) are required to own one.[2] Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment sells brass telescopes for five Galleons.[3]

Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes sells a joke version of this product: the boxing telescope.[4]
