Nothing would be done at all if one waited until they could do it so well that nobody could find fault with it.
Quote:its 2x the aperture not 1x and thats max but if sky conditions allow so that max on a 150mm scope or 6" scope is 300x not 150x.
Quote: I am not so sure on this 50X/" rule for scopes of small focal ratio.

Quote: When the conditions support high magnifications, I will a Paracorr + 3.5mm Nagler + 2x Barlow in my 10 inch F/5 Dob to split the tightest double stars, that's 821x and 82x/inch of aperture. Collimation, cooldown and seeing, these are critical, even for a 6 inch scope. My 130mm F/5, it would handle 50x/inch on the planets but it took close to an hour to cool down enough and that was here in mild San Diego.Jon
