    Question Meade LX70 R6 OTA

    Greetings folks!
    I just purchased and received my telescope w/ mount and cannot figure out what the field of view is of the two eyepieces that came with it. They don't indicate and the OTA did not come with any manual, surprisingly! Anyhow, all it indicates on the eyepiece is:
    MEADE Plossl 9mm [and 25mm] China

    How can I figure this out? Any ideas? I tried looking on the Internet to no avail!
    However, as it is written: "What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived the things God has prepared for those who love him."

    The weakest link in the optical chain is the large nut located directly behind the eyepiece/ camera. - Gabrielle

    thing in some balance of perspective. Apos are awesome, but long focus Achros aren't that far behind them - Siriusandthepup (CN)

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind. - Jon Isaacs (CN)
