Abstract
We describe the development of a portable NRL seeing monitor which consists of a 12 inch Meade f/10 telescope with a Dalsa Cad6 260x260 camera having 10 micron pixels. This seeing monitor is capable of up to 700 frames per second. We have three different techniques to measure Fried's r0 parameter: full aperture, two-hole mask, and two-hole mask with in-line intensifier. For the observations done at the Anderson Mesa, Arizona site in January-July 2004, we present comparison of Fried's r0 obtained. Calibration, observing techniques, and data analysis techniques are described. Comparison of the three different techniques is discussed.
