Given an objective lens and an eyepiece, the observer adjusts the distance Di to get a sharp image. The total magnification is given by the equation above: 1 1 1 + = Do Di fobj Di = fobj Do Do ! fobj M obj M eyepiece = ! Do NP Do ! fobj feyepiece Textbook Example 27 ­5: NP = 25 cm fobj = 1 cm = 0.01 m (+100 diopter) feye = 2.5 cm = 0.025 m (+40 diopter) Do = 1.1 cm Do NP M obj M eyepiece = ! = !110 Do ! fobj feyepiece...
