Abstract

Carried with an astronomical adaptive optics (AO) system, this work reports the observational evidences of wave-front deformations dominated by sources of perturbation acting as phase slabs moving at a constant speed in front of the telescope aperture. Consequences for improved adaptive optics compensation are suggested.
