Abstract

A shift-and-add (SAA) operation is conducted to reconstruct a high-spatial-resolution image from atmospherically degraded solar images. The self-deconvolving data reconstruction algorithm is used to augment high-spatial-frequency components in solar speckle images and rectify the background component that results from the SAA operation. Self-deconvolved solar speckle images are shift and added and the resulting image shows high-spatial-resolution features.
