How is Highest Magnification 142x calculated from the eyepiece 70x magnification?
Asked by: Mihail
The highest theoretical magnification is 142x. If using a 2x Barlow lens with the 10mm eyepiece, the magnification will be close to the highest limit at 140x. However, it must only be done so if seeing conditions are stable enough to achieve good results.
