Abstract:
The authors briefly describe the basic ideas behind a new deconvolution technique which overcomes some of the drawbacks of the traditional methods and which gives results of high photometric and astrometric accuracy. The authors also show how it can be combined with other techniques (e.g. adaptive optics) to give even better results.
