I thought the maximum magnification you can get
from a 60mm refractor is 120X?

However, I heard some astronomers use up to 144X with a 60mm refractor and still get clear image?
I was thinking of using an Orion Explorer 6mm to achieve 117X powers but I was afraid the image would be fuzzy.
Can someone help me?

My scope is 60mm f/11.7 700mm Meade coated optics.
