Thanks M11.

When I look at Orion M42 with 8" + 30mm eyepiece, what would be the relative magnification that I can expect in comparison to viewing via naked eyes?

I would recommend as Allan has mentioned to point at Orion M42 and test your scope and eyepieces on that.

As you use your 15mm and 9mm eyepieces you should see a smaller field of view but more details, especially the Trapezium of at least 4 stars.

See you you go after that.
