Figure 10

This bar plot shows a more quantitative comparison of the behavior of the specific Zernike Orders per each test. The histogram unamibiguously shows the impact of a decreased diameter with respect to . Specifically, for example, when is ten times greater than the diameter of the receiving telescope, the variance in tip is nearly three orders of magnitude greater than when the diameters of the two are matched ().
