Paper Abstract

This article summarizes the seeing effects of the atmospheric turbulence found in the immediate vicinity of the telescope, namely that generated by the enclosure and the telescope itself. The main contributions from the telescope and the enclosure are elucidated and quantitative engineering parameterizations applicable to an actual telescope and observatory design are provided.
