Limiting magnitude - Wikipedia

Star magnitudes do count backward, the result of an ancient fluke that seemed like a good idea at the time.

The larger the aperture of the telescope or binoculars the fainter the stars you can see. Having a system to describe a star's brightness is useful for many reasons in astronomy, including the scientific study of variable stars and describing the brightness of a new object in the sky such as a nova, supernova or comet.

When you gain weight, after all, the scale doesn't tell you a smaller number of pounds or kilograms. But things are not so sensible in astronomy — at least not when it comes to the brightnesses of stars.
