Messier FOV in Camera - Excel Sheet


Recommended Posts

More cloudy nights! In the interests of reducing time spent on imaging objects with the wrong scope optical combination I've put together an Excel sheet to indicate the size of each Messier object in a camera FOV, for 1 camera, 2 scopes & 2 Focal Reducer combinations. It gives actual size as a % of the camera FOV, and a simple 'traffic lights' indicator to show if the object is <50%, 50-100%, >100%. Enjoy!

Yes, seen the CCD prog before, but this time I wanted an 'at a glance' sheet so I could see all the objects at once for quick reference. The CCD prog does cover some extra objects not on my sheet at the moment.
