**MathMate**, Saturday, July 25, 2009 at 9:16amFor astronomical telescopes, the objects are at infinity, so parallel rays reach the objective. The eye-piece is therefore placed at a distance from the objective equal to the focal length. At this location, the magnification is equal to the quotient of the focal lengths.

Magnification

= 100 cm / 8 cm

= 12.5 times.

Note: eye-pieces usually have focal lengths in the millimetres range, so it is likely that the focal length of the eye-piece is 8 mm., in which case

Magnification

= 100 cm /8 mm

= 125 times.
