A refracting telescope (also called a refractor) is a type of optical telescope that uses a lens as its objective to form an image (also referred to a dioptric telescope).

- Refracting telescope

The first known practical telescopes were refracting telescopes with glass lenses and were invented in the Netherlands at the beginning of the 17th century.

- Telescope

The objective in a refracting telescope refracts or bends light.

Using a telescope, Rømer observed the motions of Jupiter and one of its moons, Io.

- Light

Optical telescopes, using visible light

Magnifying glasses, spectacles, contact lenses, microscopes and refracting telescopes are all examples of this manipulation.
