Abstract
Star trails have been taken with a CCD-camera covering a field of approximately 10'. With the telescope movement stopped the sampling rate was of the order of 40 Hz. The correlations between the centroid variations of different trails, representing the image motion perpendicular to the trails, have been calculated. The power spectra of the centroid motions are used to identify their origin. The method turns out to be feasible for the measurement of the isoplanatic angle of image motion. The results show that the correlations of the image motions can be significantly enhanced, if the time delay due to the movement of the turbulence across the field of the telescope is taken into account.
