Be careful. A scope that size will quickly lose image quality if you use too much magnification and, in the end, you see less detail, not more; nor is the mount designed to handle high magnifications. Lastly, as magnification increases, the scope becomes much harder to use. For best results, I would try to keep magnifications at a max of 150-175x and no more. That would translate to about 6 or 7mm eyepiece.
