Calculate field of view

Howdy,
How do I calculate the field of view of my scope and camera to input this data in arc minutes into EQMosaic? I am using a DSI Pro 2 and an F/5 102mm refractor. Can someone do the calculation in an example style so I can work through it and use it for my other scopes and cameras?
Cheers and clears!

Try this (free) calculator from Ron Wodaski.

On his website, there is a link to another site where a user has provided a library of photos so you can simulate the FOV on various Messier and NGC objects.

Cheers

Dennis
