Paper Abstract

The Software Package AIRY (acronym of Astronomical Image Restoration in interferometrY) is a complete tool for the simulation and the deconvolution of astronomical images. The data can be a post-adaptive-optics image of a single dish telescope or a set of multiple images of a Fizeau interferometer. Written in IDL and freely downloadable, AIRY is a package of the CAOS Problem-Solving Environment. It is made of different modules, each one performing a specific task, e.g. simulation, deconvolution, and analysis of the data. In this paper we present the last version of AIRY containing a new optimized method for the deconvolution problem based on the scaled-gradient projection (SGP) algorithm extended with different regularization functions. Moreover a new module based on our multi-component method is added to AIRY. Finally we provide a few example projects describing our multi-step method recently developed for deblurring of high dynamic range images. By using AIRY v.7.0, users have a powerful tool for simulating the observations and for reconstructing their real data.
