In Season 2, Episode 1 ("Brother") of Star Trek Discovery, the crew takes images of an asteroid's surface using Discovery's "telescopic cameras".
Since one of the images shows
a starfleet vessel which has crash-landed on the surface,
the image is put on the main screen and we hear Michael Burnham say the following:
"There's no way to zoom in any further!
Commander Saru, I know your vision has a larger optical window than ours. Can you make out the registry number?"
which was not a nice thing to do, because it completely broke my suspension of disbelief in the middle of the episode.
Seriously? The Discovery's main screen has no "digital zoom" feature? My PC was able to do that back in the 20th century! Oh, and they could have also just walked a few steps closer to that huge view screen.
On the other hand, obviously, a lot of effort went into that scene (we even see Saru's eyes "zooming in"), so there might be a perfectly logical in-universe explanation that I have just missed.
Why weren't they able to just digitally zoom in on the image taken from the surface?
