Yes, I agree that one needs to start low and work one's way up the magnification range. That was how I discovered that I could exceed the theoretical limits some nights but on many others I was reaching only half the theoretical limit.

To be honest, these days, photons are more likely to reach my camera, rather than my eye and the "rules" are very, very different.
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.
