The power of a telescope depends on what eyepiece you use. To figure that out you take the telescope focal length and divide it by the focal length of the eyepiece. In this case the telescope has a focal length of 360mm, so with the 20mm eyepiece you have 18x power and with the 8mm it's 45x (and x3 barlow will multiply those by 3)
