I'm trying to educate myself, but there are concepts that keep slipping away from me.
Eyepieces are easy to understand: how they magnify (so to speak) and how important the field of view is.
12.5mm on an 8"
While a 25 mm = 80 times
Cameras do not magnify the image, they only record what they see, don't they?
I thought I understood the math behind the sensor.
I simply don't, so I will ask.
If I attach a full framed camera to the Telescope, how would I figure the equivalent magnification?
I thought I could find an equivalent statement that would say the image I recorded with this camera on this 8"
I know they are different and we cannot actually say that this camera, mounted on this Telescope, is equal to the image you would see with a certain power eyepiece.
Yet, I find myself asking that question.
I have been watching youtube videos where they have recorded Jupiter, the Moon, Saturn and have no clue as to the Eyepiece I will need and what I should expect.
I've been asked if that is the image my telescope will produce when I get the eyepieces. (Ordered from California Supplier)
All I can say, is I hope so, but I have no clue (Yet),,,
All I know is the magnification of the eyepieces, but have no clue about the videos we have been watching (Could be better, could be smaller)
In a week I will know what to expect,
Thank you in advance,
