A telescope was a device used to magnify images in much the same way as a pair of macrobinoculars. It was presumably a variant of the electrotelescope.
In 4 BBY Lando Calrissian longed for an optical telescope as opposed to the electronic magnifier onboard the Millennium Falcon that was not functioning due to the effects of the Flamewind. 
During his time on Tatooine, Luke Skywalker wished he owned a telescope rather than his macrobinoculars.
Above Belkadan were orbiting scopes used by the outpost of ExGal-4.
