Camera FOV

I am trying to setup the FOV for my Meade LX200 8" and my Nikon D500 Camera. The Meade is 2000 mm f/10 and the D500 has an imaging area of 23.5 x 15.7 mm and is 4176 x 2784 pixels. When I put his in,It gives me a FOV of 4' x 3' when it is actually 40' x 27' - off by a magnitude of 10. What am I doing wrong?

    LOL - I put in the focal length of 2000 instead of the aperture... duh

    Thanks!
