Abstract

Measurements of isoplanatism for speckle interferometry and speckle imaging applications have been made at a 1.57 meter aperture telescope in Hawaii. The measurements were obtained from optically produced spatial power spectra of short-exposure images showing pairs of stars with different angular separations. The result of this process is a sequence of plots of correlation versus spatial frequency in the image for 0.25, 0.5, 1.9, and 4.7 arc sec separation binary stars. Substantial correlation is found to at least 0.6 of the diffraction limit cutoff for the 4.7 arc sec pair.
