Abstract:

It is of critical importance to know the temporal and spatial character of the isoplanatic patch, in order to access or design pre- or post- detection systems. Here the author reports on progress on a system that uses the edge of the sun as an extended target in order to determine the daytime spatial and temporal characteristics of the isoplanatic patch. The system described uses a pair of linear diode arrays that are aligned along solar radii at points that cross the image of the edge. A description of the telescope and the array electronics is included.
