- "Telescopes can be used for studying the night skies and identifying different stars and planets."
A telescope is a device used for seeing faraway objects. Those used in the wizarding world were presumably magical to some extent, as they could be used to see objects that would be impossible to see with a Muggle telescope.
They were 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) were required to own one. Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment sold brass telescopes for five Galleons.
