For optical imaging through turbulence, a measure that specifies how close a given imaging system is to being isoplanic is defined. Its dependence on the spatial resolution, seeing angle, and turbulence structure is given. The results shows that, for low-resolution imaging, the isoplanic condition is usually satisfied, whereas, for diffraction-limited imaging, the isoplanic condition restricts the size of seeing angle.
