    Default Powermate x exit pupil



    Would a TV Powermate keep the eyepiece exit pupil, while enhancing magnification?
    e.g. - would a 480 f/6 using a 24mm eyepiece (20x, 4mm exit pupil) turn into a 60x, 4mm or a 60x, 1.3mm?

    Default Re: Powermate x exit pupil

    The exit pupil will be reduced by the Powermate factor, so for the 3x in your example, it would be the 1.3mm exit pupil.
