The first number in a binocular’s rating (i.e. 10x). Magnification is calculated by dividing the focal length ratio of the eyepiece by focal length ratio of the objective lens. As an example, a magnification of 10x makes an object appear ten times closer. For binoculars, the most common magnification levels fall between 8x and 12x.
