Polychromatic imaging through turbulence using monochromatic adaptive optics is degraded by multi-wavelength scintillation. Resultant weak-regime correction error variances are proportional (not equal) to Rytov log-amplitude variances. Wave-optic simulations validate coefficients derived from spatial filters.
