Abstract

Long-range holography is investigated for improving telescope resolution through a distorting atmosphere. Theoretical concepts are developed and operational parameters are discussed. A scaled simulation is made in the laboratory of a scene subtending an angle of 1 min of arc, illuminated by a laser and viewed holographically with a 40-cm telescope through fixed and moving atmospheres.
