Magnification and Field of View
Name: Courtney G.
What is the relationship between magnification and the
diameter of the field of view?
There is an inverse relationship between the magnification and the diameter
of the field of view. If the image gets larger while your retina (of
course) stays the same diameter, you will see a smaller part of the object
at any one time.
