Objective lens Lower power
Eye lens Higher power
Position of the object At infinity
Nature of the image, I1 Real, inverted and magnified
Position of the image, I1. At the principle focus of object lens, fo.
Nature of the image, I2 Virtual, inverted and smaller in size.
Distance in between the two lens
  1. The distance between the object lens and the eye lens in a compound microscope is equal to the sum of the  focal length (fo + fe).
  2. If the distance between both lenses are bigger than (fo + fe), no image can be seen.
