Field of View Calculator

Post by marktownley » Sat May 10, 2014 9:36 pm

I came across this field of view calculator before - it's pretty good I think with a decent database of both cameras and scopes. There's an option to put the sun in as the object too. You can drag the solar image around the view box to get to the limb...

I'll leave it in the main forum section for a day or two so people see it, then put it in the library.

Hope it's of use!

I found one because I wanted to know what the fov would be with a 100mm f10 scope and a quark (use 4.2x mag factor) - it's pretty small!
