magnitude vs. aperture

While updating some double star information, I wondered what aperture is required to see a particular magnitude. I recalled the table from All About Telescopes that showed an infographic with magnitudes and the required aperture.

But I wanted something to show this the other way around... I wondered if such a thing exists. Did a quick search.

Found a limiting magnitude table on The Wilderness Center Astronomy Club's web site. It'll do, for now.
