In a single-slit diffraction pattern, there is a bright central

In a single-slit diffraction pattern, there is a bright central maximum surrounded by successively dimmer higher-order maxima. Farther away from the central maximum, eventually no more maxima are observed. Is this because the remaining maxima are too dim? Or is there an upper limit to the number of maxima that can be observed, no matter how good the observer's eyes, for a given slit and light source?
