hi Luiz

the spreadsheet includes Airy's formula for the optics, but converted to arcseconds and added in quadrature in the complete FWHM calculation. hope this helps.

the complete FWHM formula is: FWHM in the chosen atm = SQRT(seeingFWHM^2 + scopeFWHM^2 + (2.35*guidingRMS)^2). It combines seeing effects, scope resolution and guiding blur.

Cheers Ray
