Paper Abstract

We discuss the importance of the isoplanatic assumption in conventional imaging and in imaging using intensity interferometry. For conventional imaging, we treat both short- and long-time exposures. In imaging using intensity interferometry, we present a general result, in which isoplanicity is not assumed, and then study the first order non-isoplanatic correction. Explicit calculations are given for the correction under typical atmospheric conditions.
