Abstract:

A camera, suitable for recording speckle interferograms through large optical telescopes, has been constructed. Its design and performance characteristics are reported together with the results of initial studies of the isoplanatic patch at the Steward Observatory 2.3m telescope on Kitt Peak. The speckle pattern correlation approaches zero for objects separated by 6 arcsecs. Author
