Enter the field number (f-number) and the objective magnification into the calculator to determine the field of view.

## Field of View Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a field of view.

FOV = FN / M

- Where FN is the field number (f-number)
- M is the objective magnification
- FOV is the field of view

## Field of View Definition

A field of view is defined as the distance of the observable area seen through a microscope or telescope.
