Paper Abstract

Conventional post detection image processing techniques have been applied to three simulations of photon noise limited images of the moon which might be obtained through atmospheric turbulence. This study demonstrates that homomorphic filtering, parametric Wiener filtering, and constrained least squares filtering can produce nearly diffraction-limited imagery if the atmosphere is "frozen" for 1/100 - 1/10 sec.
