|Bacteria under the microscope|
Gypsum captured at 1000x magnification using the Digital BA210 microscope.
Magnifying an object 1000x is as good as it gets with a light microscope. In order to resolve even smaller objects, you would need to use a different kind of microscope known as a scanning electron microscope. Any light microscope that offers magnification above 1000x may magnify the object a lot, but the resolution will be poor.
