Less The objective lens has a very small focal length. The object is placed just over F of the objective lens forming a magnified image. This image is the object for the eye lens and lies between focus and optical center of the eye less as it has a greater focal length as compared to the objective lens. Since the new object is between focus and and optical center, it forms a virtual, magnified image which falls on the eye.
