Paper Abstract

It is shown that high resolution imaging is possible by use of a reference star that is separated wider than the isoplanatic angle from an object under observation. A shift-and-add operation to the reference star results in a high resolution image of an object, though not diffraction-limited. Observational results of a binary star with angular separation of 22" indicate that a simple adaptive optics system is feasible in the visible region.
