Refractor telescopes are what most people think of when it comes to "telescopes.” They are made of a long, narrow tube in which light passes in a straight line between the front, objective lens and a rear-mounted eyepiece. Many people like their simple design, which makes them reliable and easy to use with little to no maintenance. Refractors are great for night lunar, planetary, star and daytime terrestrial observation.
