Paper Abstract

After the Hubble Space Telescope was stabilized so that it could image a star, scientists were dismayed to find that the telescope produced severely degraded images. A flaw in the manufacture of the primary mirror causes an aberration that appears to be circularly symmetric. In this paper we review some of the algorithms and procedures that have been used to perform image restoration of the Hubble data.
