Hello,
I am doing an assignment, and am required to work out how much of the sky can be imaged in a single night by a telescope.

If the amount of celestial sphere that is visible for this particular site is 26360.64 degree squared for the 12 hours.

The feild of view of the telescope is 2100 x 1700 arc seconds, with a read out time of 5 seconds per exposure.

How would i figure out how much sky can be imaged over 12 hours?

I really need help.. this is due tonight :/
Regards
William
