|1: It is used to see very small objects.||1:It is used to see large and distant objects.|
|2:In microscope focal length of eye piece lens is greater than the focal length of the objective lens.||2:In telescope focal length of objective is greater than eye piece.|
|3:The aperture of objective is small.||3:The aperture of objective is large.|
|4:For higher magnification focal length of object should should be small.||4:For higher magnification focal length of objective should be large.|
