Ok I'm working on my geometric optics hw and this is the last problem and I can't seem to get it right.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

An 6 astronomical telescope has a 32 cm focal-length objective lens. After looking at stars, an astronomer moves the eyepiece 1.0 cm farther away from the objective to focus on nearer objects. What is the distance to the nearer objects?

I'm not really sure how to set this up. I know that magnification=fo/fe but I dont know how to find the distance of the nearer object. Thanks for any help.
