# Magnification of an Astronomical Telescope

Gold Member
My teacher taught me a formula for magnification in case of Compound Microscope,
Magnification=(Angle Made By Object On Aided Eye)/(Angle Made by Object on Un-aided Eye)

Can I use this formula for calculating magnification of Astronomical Telescope?

Thanks!
