These last years ground-based astronomy has been looking towards Antarctica, especially its summits and the internal continental plateau where the optical turbulence appears to be confined in a shallow layer close to the icy surface. Preliminary measurements have so far indicated pretty good value for the seeing above 30-35 m: 0.36” (Agabi et al. 2006), 0.27” (Lawrence et al. 2004) and 0.3” (Trinquet et al. 2008) at Dome C. Site testing campaigns are however extremely expensive, instruments… CONTINUE READING
