Help with Chandra X-ray

  1. Aug 30, 2010 #1
    What is the field of view of a single Chandra X-ray Observatory ACIS CCD chip and how many times could a single CCD fit across the disc of the Moon? If an X-ray source completely fills a single CCD and is located at a distance of 500 pc, how many kilometers across is the object

    This sounds like a homework question. Where have you looked RE: the ACIS chip size?
