Abstract
Although many methods have been proposed for the detection of exoplanets with adaptive optics, the problem of measuring their brightness is relatively neglected. We propose a novel, reference-less technique, which we call "PDF deconvolution", where the traditional 2-D image deconvolution is replaced by a 1-D time-series deconvolution. We present examples of its excellent accuracy on real and simulated adaptive optics observations with 3-8m apertures.
