Abstract
Measurements of the atmospheric tilt power spectral density performed in November 1989 using the 30 inch tower telescope of the National Solar Observatory at Sunspot, New Mexico are reported. The measurements were based on a solar pore on the sun as a near-point source and tracking the apparent angular tilt of that source with a fast tilt mirror and closed loop controler. Reliable spectral measurements were obtained past 400 Hz for effective telescope apertures of 22 and 76 cm.
