8. CommentsIt is hard to fill out with the system above as it is designed for visual work. I can only say that I measured the FWHM of stars in my images at 2.0-2.3 arcsec on long guided exposures. This is good to average seeing for this location. Magnification entered only so system will accept entry - it is largely irrelevant for CCD
