Paper Abstract

We present here a novel concept for achieving real-time super-resolution ground-based imagery for small aperture telescopes. We explore the combination of existing stacking and registration software in conjunction with real-time equation based Data Models. Our research indicates that for anisoplanatic imagery, a real-time video/software enhanced analog to conventional speckle imaging is possible. This paper highlights the technique and theory for creating such a system.
