Abstract
A flexible Monte Carlo program has been developed to simulate imaging through a turbulent atmosphere. We have applied this to conventional stellar speckle imaging and to the situation where an object is coherently illuminated and viewed after double passage through a random phase screen. We show that the timeaveraged image contains diffraction-limited information on the Fourier modulus of the object.
