Abstract

A technique has recently been proposed for processing astronomical photographs to remove the effects of turbulence. The method involves averaging over many short-exposure photographs of an object to reconstruct a diffraction-limited image of the object. A two-dimensional computer simulation of the reconstruction technique is presented. The results indicate that diffraction-limited imaging with a 100 in. telescope is possible even with 2 arcsec seeing conditions.
