Abstract

Simple dimensional analysis shows that many scintillation phenomena can be interpreted in terms of aperture filtering. The saturation of stellar scintillation at large zenith angles cannot be accounted for by dispersion, but can be accounted for by a combination of dispersion and seeing-disk filtering.
