Loss Of Sharpness At Higher Magnification

You will always loose some sharpness of the image when you go to higher magnification. If you have reached the limits of magnification on your scope (which is a function of the focal length of your scope and eye piece), objects may be "over focused", and will not be as sharp as by using lower magnification eye pieces. This may have happened to you.

Hope this helps,

Ralph J.
