I cannot for the life of me remember what website it is that you can check your framing and FOV based on your camera sensor and FL? 

 

Also. SE Michigan. 
Meade Reflector 803mm 294MC pro.

 

Thinking something in the Cygnus loop tonight, but I don't know if I'll have too much FL for that? Suggestions? 

 

Thanks everyone.

Honestly, for the most fun and flexibility, download NINA. You don’t need to connect it to anything, just enter your imaging focal length, and camera pixel size and count. Then use the framing wizard. You can see how your imaging frame covers and object anywhere in the sky.

fwiw I use SkySafari Pro on my iPhone to keep all my AP image train field of views as well as all my telescope/eyepiece field of views...very easy when "in the field" to check field of views on any potential target...
