Assuming an object is emitting/reflecting a finite number of photons, then, there is a magnification procedure that will magnify the image of that object so much that the emitted photons will be so dispersed that the image will become unrecognizable. Do we know what this maximum is? How does it vary with respect to the size of the object? Linearly?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
