We want to give you some information about the magnification of this vintage telescope. Unlike modern telescopes, this type of telescope does not have a magnification value marked on the body. However, we have tested this telescope with a spotting scope that has a zoom magnification. We found that the images from both telescopes are similar when the spotting scope is set to about 12-15x. This is an approximate value, and it is only for your reference. We hope this helps you to appreciate the quality and power of this vintage telescope.
