Re: what is the magnification of a telescope without any eyepiece

50mm = x1 is pretty reasonably estimate when comparing to a 35mm equivalent.

For other cameras you need to factor in the sensor size. I use a Canon APS-C, so 1.6x to come with my estimate.

It is a thing that your initial idea of 4000x is not correct. Ask anyone...try imaging at 4000x!! LOL!   I think you would need a base on the moon, skies on earth would probably never have good enough seeing.

There is website that allows you to put in data and see an approximate 'view' with most of the popular cameras on the market, astro, dslr, mirrorless etc. I can't recall it but someone may post.

Cheers
