Paper Abstract

We report a test of the turbulence found in real-world, horizontal imaging under high magnification. The experiment creates a double "star" on a test chart for use both with a SLODAR turbulence profiling instrument, and simultaneously imaged using a very fast camera to determine traditional seeing parameters. Effects on a similarly located image are investigated to determine the observed effects on the imagery as a function of turbulence location.
