Properties of speckle imaging lens-atmosphere transfer functions that impact phase retrieval and subsequent image reconstruction have been measured under realistic conditions using bright stellar sources. These measurements generally support assumptions made by those who have proposed phase retrieval algorithms and tested them on simulated data.
