Based on data record of young lunar crescent (hilal) observations around the world, now we have basic scheme of hilal visibility judgement (i.e. hilal can be observed with naked eye, requiring the help of an optical instrument, or hilal can not be observed at all) according to certain physical parameters chosen. Hitherto a mathematical model that predicts the hilal visibility for a particular location only consider Moon–Sun geometry configuration and twilight sky brightness factors. This paper discusses hilal visibility predictions on telescopic–based visual observations which include the age of the observer, the light transmission in the optical instrument, the size of the mirror/lens as light collector and the magnification of the telescope used as well. The model accommodates all of the above factors are then applied to predict the next hilal visibility for the beginning of Ramadan, Shawwal and Dul-hijjah 1435 Hijri (2014 AD).
