Hopefully I can phrase this question so that it can be understood and not appear to be entirely uneducated.
From what I understand when light hits an object it reflects that light toward you. Let's say we have 1,000 white golf balls on the moon clumped together, each one reflecting it's own light, and we zoom in as far as our technology will allow. We now have an image of a bright patch on the moon. Is it possible to further resolve the image by zooming in to an already zoomed image in real-time and see each golf ball? Or do light waves reach a point where they become saturated, overlap and can't be distinguished from one another? I ask this because I am conducting an experiment in which I have created a massive distilled water lens with incredible focussing power. However I still get the same image only larger with minimal increase in resolution. Any insight into this matter would be greatly appreciated.
