Answer: 
Hello, Karl.

Having spoken to the supplier regarding your query they advise me that an optimum magnification of 277x and a potential for 833x is indeed correct.

The ?Optimum Magnification? is calculated by dividing the Focal length of the telescope (in this case 1000mm) by the smallest size Eyepiece (3.5mm) which equals 277.77 recurring.

The ?Maximum Theoretical Magnification? is calculated by adding the use of the 3 times Barlow lens. The Barlow lens multiplies the magnification gained from the eyepiece by 3 times, therefore when the Barlow lens is used with the 3.6mm eyepiece, the ?Maximum Theoretical Magnification? is 833.333 recurring (277.777 x 3 = 833.333).

I hope this helps.

Answer: 
Hi Paul

This telescope is described as being high-spec and suitable for both terrestrial and astronomical use so you should be able to see a wide variety of planets and stars. It has a very strong magnification up to x833 and includes extra eyepieces and accessories for enhanced image clarity. Obviously there are many external factors that will affect what you can see, if there is thick cloud cover you wont see anything, regardless of what telescope you are using. Also the location of the planets, stars etc as they move around the solar system will change depending on time of year and this will also change the way they are viewed through the telescope. Reviews on internet search engines have shown that those who have purchased the telescope already have been pleased with it.

Have a nice day.

Hi,

Thank you for your question.

A telescope of this size will show Jupiter?s larger moons but you will need to steer it yourself.

Thank you for using Q&A.
