A telescope is an optical instrument using lenses, curved mirrors, or a combination of both to observe distant objects. You get three main types of telescopes; Reflectors, Refractors and Cassegrains.
Reflectors make use of mirrors and are a more cost effective alternative for a larger aperture, Refractors make use of lenses and are therefore more expensive for a bigger aperture and Cassegrain scopes make use of lenses and mirrors which gives the user a long focal length in a short tube.
There are various factors to consider when purchasing a telescope such as the area you will be observing from, whether you plan to do terrestrial and/or celestial viewing as well as whether you plan on doing photography.
