Abstract
Small robotic telescopes (like BOOTES in Spain, BART in Czech Republic or FRAM in Argentina) are constructed for continuous galactic survey and fast reactions to GRB (Gamma Ray Burts) alerts. Due subtile construction performance of those instruments strongly depends on temperature, atmosphere scintillations etc. In this article will be discussed possibilities of performance improvement based on knowledge of any transfer characteristic like modulation transfer function MTF (or Point Spread Function PSF of course) of imaging system introducing a robotic telescope.
