This experiment can immediately follow an experiment on the construction and function of an astronomical telescope.
If this experiment is performed on its own, it can easily be expanded by using the lens with f = -50 mm (no. 09820.06) as ocular, instead of the lens with f = +50 mm. Then the magnification of a Dutch telescope can also be determined.


  • Multifunctional light box - All-in-one: Can be used for geometric optics on the table, colour mixing and on an optical bench
  • Extension with others sets at anytime, no additional light sources needed, recognition value for students


Construct a model of the astronomical telescope and determine the achievable magnification.
