Simply put, telescopes enhance an image within the visual spectrum of light. Like the Hubble telescope, telescopic technology (along with radar) has found an invaluable role in outer space - it is used to map the cosmos, visually detect things found by radar, and record images for later analysis. Many combination radar-telescope systems are in existence, which integrate the two technologies into one: Long-range radar detects faraway objects and ascertains their exact location, whereupon a high-precision telescopic array zooms in on that point.
