The properties of the images of remote objects obtained by a method the Fourier-telescope are investigated depending on size of the receiving aperture. The essential role is played consideration of a object surface micro roughness. Is shown, that at the super-large receiving apertures intercepting all reflected energy, the image does not contain speckles and does not depend on a contour of a surface. At the apertures intercepting a part of a reflected energy, the image is fluctuated on luminosity also depends from macro- and micro roughness of a surface. The fluctuation of a image brightness (contrast) depending on sizes of the receiving aperture are investigated. The conclusions about optimum sizes of the receiving aperture are done.
