Relations for energy moments of the non–Gaussian radiation field obeying the lognormal intensity distribution which permit one to calculate any moments for a number of photoelectrons for arbitrary ratio between the sampling time and the correlation length of the field have been derived. Analytical approximations for the moments, which refine the well–known asymptotes and depend parametrically not only on the variance of the intensity logarithm, but also on the relative sampling time, have been derived. The range of applicability of these approximations has been determined.
