Hey there.

I was asked the other day if I would be able to seee the Lunar Landers, and didnt know. But I whipped out my trusty HP48G and figured out that my eyepiece has a 4000foot viewing image at what I assumed the highest power.

How do I figure out what size objects in the sky that I can resolve? ( straight math, not taking atmospheric conditions into play)

thanks!
