Any telescope will do this but traditionally the old fashioned brass telescopes were refracting telescopes.

A refracting or refractor telescope is a dioptric telescope that uses a lens as its objective to form an image. The refracting telescope design was originally used in spy glasses and astronomical telescopes but is also used in other devices such as binoculars and long or telephoto camera lenses. == ==

What is the purpose of an objective lens on a telescope?

A telescope is an instrument designed for the observation of remote objects by the collection of electromagnetic radiation. An optical telescope is a telescope which is used to gather and focus light mainly from the visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum for directly viewing a magnified image for making a photograph, or collecting data through electronic image sensors. A refracting or refractor telescope is a type of optical telescope that uses a lens as its objective to form an image. The objective lens of a refractor collects the distant light and brings it to a point of focus.
