Abstract
A previous paper showed that the spatial photocount average performed over a photon-limited image by a photon counting mask, and the subsequent histogram manipulation produce images which can be easily recognized by an observer. The results obtained were demonstrated as fairly good for images with a number of illuminated pixels greater than 0.8%. The aim of this paper is to determine the minimum number of illuminated pixels required for a reasonably good scene reconstruction.
