I ended up with a magnification of 3.Remember this is angular magnification so if initial angle of observation is 30 degrees it will become 90 degrees
cool, what kind of magnification did you end up with?

Well I used glue

Very great project, I have one question, my lenses have no indication of magnifying power x, can I say that the focal length of the lens is the distance from the lens to the image of the sun? That small hot spot of the sun by the lens.

I love the simplicity of this project! Help me understand what a magification of 3 will allow me to see. Can I use this to see the stars, planets, meteorites etc.?
