We have constructed an image-stabilization system that measures wave-front tilt over a telescope aperture that is due to atmospheric turbulence. This system uses small features on the Sun as point sources. The wave-front tilt power spectral density has been measured with this system out to more than 500 Hz. The spectra show three distinct asymptotic slopes that do not, in general, agree with theoretical predictions based on the Kolmogorov model.
