Paper Abstract

An experiment to collect data on atmospheric turbulence has been conducted on the 107" telescope located at McDonald Observatory in West Texas. Phase and intensity of aberrated starlight have been measured over the aperture of the telescope. Simultaneous measurements of free-atmosphere seeing and local temperature differences have been made to gauge the strength of turbulence within the dome vs. turbulence in the free atmosphere.
