Abstract
The 3.5 m telescope, located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, at the Starfire Optical Range (SOR) routinely images asteroids and moons orbiting around the asteroid. However point-spread-functions (PSFs) with trefoil-like structure make it difficult to detect moons at small angular separations from the parent asteroid. This work investigates whether the low wind effect, such as that reported by VLT/SPHERE, produces trefoil-like PSFs (Sauvage et. al 2016).
