Yes Henry this made it absolutely clear:
No amount of increased magnification will extend the 20 lp/mm resolvable at 10 meters to any longer distance than 10 meters.
Thank you for sticking with me on this.
If by "Nothing much would be gained at any distance" you mean extra detail, I wasnt refering to extra detail. I understand that you are saying no extra detail would be gained.
What I was wondering was whether the detail resolved by the standard eyepiece at maximum magnification...
Thanks for this VB.
I can see from your reply that 'boosting' = extender/teleconverter when I only meant to refer to an increase of magnification with a different eyepiece, so I have edited my post to reflect this otherwise I will have Henry scratching his head again.
Personally I would not...
Thanks Henry and I clearly didn't express myself well with my question so I will have another try.
I understand your contention that increasing magnification with a different eyepiece would not reveal more detail but I am wondering if it would make the detail it can resolve easier to see and...
I have never used a boosted scope but I am wondering if boosting a Harpia in this way would make its native resolution more easily discernable at 'pre-boosted' distances and also make this detail visible at much longer distances. Always assuming the boosting EP was of sufficient quaility...
