Refractor telescopes are the most commonly recognized types of telescopes. They use a glass lens to form an image by bending, or refracting, parallel light rays to converge at a focal point.

Refractors are an excellent choice for both visual astronomy as well as astrophotography. They tend to produce the highest contrast among the other telescope types. Additionally, their low maintenance, light weight and ease of use make them great for both beginners and advanced users.

We carry high quality Refractor telescopes curated from industry-leading brands such as: Explore Scientific, Vixen, and DayStar.
