A telescope was a device used to magnify images in much the same way as a pair of macrobinoculars. It was presumably related to the electrotelescope.
In 4 BBY Lando Calrissian longed for an optical telescope as opposed to the electronic magnifier aboard 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.
Prior to its destruction at the beginning of the Yuuzhan Vong War, the outpost of ExGal-4 on Belkadan used both ground-based and orbiting scopes.
