The characteristics of the one-way image transmission system presented in Part 1 are investigated in detail [ Appl. Opt. 22, 2192 ( 1983)]. First, a general expression of the expectation of the transmitted image is derived for turbulence that may be typical in image transmission in the horizontal direction. Then, with the help of numerical examples, the image quality is discussed in terms of the point spread function for both thin layer and uniformly distributed turbulence. It is shown that the image transmission system is effective especially where turbulence exists relatively close to the transmission plane.
