There are two max zoom level settings. In Preferences, under the
Imagery Preferences (left tab), under Settings (top tab), under TMS
Settings make sure the "Max zoom lvl" is something larger than or
equal to 24, then under the Imagery providers tab make sure the zoom
in the zoom column is again >= 24.
