# Can we set the eyepiece of a telescope not at its focal length, to get a larger magnification?

I know the magnification of a telescope is fo/fe. But this equation is based on the setting that we put the eyepiece a focal length away from the real image of the objective. Why does we form the final image at infinity? Can we adjust the eyepiece, so that we can have a different magnification? Can we have an even larger magnification than fo/fe?
