You can't. This is a toy, not a real scope. The largest FOV is with your lowest power (biggest number) eyepiece.
If interested in wide field views, buy a GOOD telescope with a low focal ratio (below f/8)

What is field of view in Binoculars, Spotting Scopes and Rifle Scopes?


Optical field of view (FOV) refers to the width of the area that you can see when looking through a pair of Binoculars or a Spotting Scope, quite simply, how wide an area you can see through your optics. Field of view is usually described in terms of 'linear field of view' or 'angular field of view'. Both figures essentially indicate that the field of view of the optic is a certain width, but they just use different numbers to describe this.

Linear field of view is also known as the true field of view and indicates the width (in m) of the area that you can see when standing 1,000m away from an object.
Angular field of view is also known as the apparent field of view and refers to the true angle (in degrees) seen through the optics.
It is easy to convert between the two field of vision measurements:
To convert an angular field of vision to a linear field of vision, simply multiply the angular field of vision by 52.5.
To convert a linear field of vision to an angular field of vision, simply divide the liner field of vision by 52.5.

When choosing your binoculars or spotting scope, take some time to consider where you are planning to use them, as this will indicate the most suitable field of view required to get the most out of your product. The most important thing to remember is that the larger the number is given to the field of view (FOV), the larger the width of the area you will be able to see through your scope. A larger field of view is desirable if you are planning to use your scope to watch anything that is moving quickly across your viewing area as it will make it easier to aim and stay on a moving subject. For this reason, scopes with a larger field of view are favored by people watching birds in flight, a ball at a cricket game, an athlete in a race or views from a moving car.
Don't forget field of view (FOV) and magnification are closely linked, with higher magnifications resulting in a smaller field of view. Take some time to consider whether you wish to view your subject in great detail, or would prefer to be able to keep track of it if it is moving quickly; after all, there's no point being able to see the fine detail on a bird's feather if you can't find the bird in the first place!

I have a side by side whirlpool E22DQ frig. Found thick greenish black mold growing around the ice dispenser. How can I get the small trim cover piece off so i can field-strip around the dispenser? What...


I would use warm water and vinegar. There are 2 small slots under the trim at the bottom, If you insert a small rigid pin in the slot on either side this will unlock the trim. Just pull toward you.

I need instructions for Jessops 800x80 astronomical telescope please


This is a refractor style telescope. You did not say if it is on an equitorial mount or an ALT AZ mount.

Read my TIPS on my profile page. You will not find a manual for that telescope. Objects in the night sky are tiny and many are very dim. Your scope has a VERY small field of view so the telescope must be pointed directly at the object or you will see nothing. Start by using the eyepiece with the largest number written on it. This is your lowest magnification and will have the widest field of view.

How do I increase the field of view on a zeiss OpMi-1?


Field of view and working distance vs magnification is a law of physics. Using the lowest power gives you the widest field of view and greatest working distance but the trade of is that you loose magnification. Conversely as you increase magnification you decrease working distance and you loose field of view diameter.
The optics of your microscope are limited to .4x to 2.5x magnification. Your working distance is limited to 200 - 400mm depending on the magnification you are using.
I am not aware of any interchangeable lenses for this scope.

Need a manual for tasco 56t sd don't know how to use it


Here is the manual:

This is a very small 50mm refractor telescope. The same aperture as a pair of 10x50mm binoculars, which would have been better for viewing sky objects. The maximum possible magnification is about 100 power (50 times aperture of 2 inches).

The field of view is very small you must be pointed directly at the sky object to see it. This is why we recommend a pair of binoculars as your first telescope. Binoculars have a wider field of view which makes finding things easier for the beginner.

Blurres LCD image and blurred photos


1 suspect dirt on the lens ensue the lens is cleaned with proper cloth and fluid.
2 suspect auto focus sensor is defective or blocked ensure the little windows on the front are clear and fingers do not cover them while taking pictures.

3 suspect camera is set in macro setting, Macro only has a depth of field of a few centimeters any subject outside this field will be out of focus but his may not be visible on the small viewing screen on the camera but becomes apparent when images are viewed at larger sizes.
change camera setting to landscape or portrait setting.

Bushnell 114mm reflector telescope, can't see a thing


Probably NOT actually pointed directly at the moon-- you should have moved it around a little -- the moon was probably just outside the field of view through the eyepiece. ........................ telescope must be pointed DIRECTLY at the sky object-- also use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it=== this gives the LOWEST magnification..... and a slightly wider field of view.

By doing this trick--

Do a FAKE alignment-- (I assume that the scope is trained and has the proper date, time, and site)-- just push the buttons for the alignment stars that you cannot see. Then do a GOTO to a star that is in your field of view--- center the star and SYNC. Your gotos will now be OK in your limited field of view.

Lesser viewing area in my telescope


All telescopes have small fields of view-- even what is called a "rich field scope" has only about 2 degrees of view. Most scopes only have about 1 degree of view.

The key component is a short tube and a fast mirror of F4.5 or faster.
