Paper Abstract

A detailed analysis of anisotropy in the point spread function (PSF) associated with off-axis adaptive astronomical correction is presented. The results obtained are based on the experimental Cn2 profile which has been recently measured at San Pedro Martir observatory (Mexico). It is found that the PSF has a complicated shape that depends strongly on the wavelength and on the separation between the guide and observed stars.
