Hello all

 

I just acquired a “classic” Orion Multicoated illuminated reticle Japan eyepiece.  I can’t seem to find out the F.O.V.

 

any help would be appreciated.

 

Chris

This Orion website says that it has an Apparent FOV of 40.0 degrees.  It's still for sale; is it like the one you're talking about?

No. This is an older model. I believe the current model they sell is made in China.
This one is made in Japan and is a different color
