I was just doing the math for the telescope that I have coming. If I employ the 2x Barlow only one of the 3 eyepieces it comes with is useful. The other 2 exceed the practical maximum magnification limit of the telescope.

I think I got this from the book we have Sherlew. POWER RANGES OF EYEPIECES LOW POWER 40MM ~ 20MM MEDIUM POWER 19MM ~ 13MM HIGH POWER 12MM ~ 4MM
So according to that I'll have 2 high power eyepieces and one low power eyepiece. I will probably upgrade with a few new eyepieces soon. A 12mm looks like it would be great. I'll have to see if I could find one.

pickinduck: If we lived under water would we consider the air to be outer space?

sherlew99: What a fascinating concept. Well the air above would occupy an area of space. Plus the basic word "space" is just a common term that fails to include the vast, wonderful weirdness out there between all objects out beyond our world.

sherlew99: Sorry I missed your message. Don't remember precisely what I was doing that day. Was probably doing a lot of online news reading, though. The upcoming Trump administration has me worried.
