Calculate Telescopes Magnification.

A simple program to calculate the magnification value of a telescope
with a given eyepiece, primary mirror size and focal length.
Magnification values calculated are:
1. Maximum Useful Magnification - A value determined by multiplying the Primary Mirror Size by a factor of 50. The magnification value should not exceed this value.
2. Magnification Value - Determined by multipling the the eyepiece value by the scopes focal value.
3. 2x Barlow Value - Multiple the final magnification value by two.


Eye Piece Value: (mm)
Focal Length of Scope: (f)
Size of Primary Mirror: (in.)

Maximum Useful Magnification: x
Magnification Value: x
Barlow @ 2x: x
