In space optical system, image display and generation can be influenced by various factors such as stray light, space distance, orbit parameters and so on. To acquire accurate and clear image, these factors should be considered. Before acquiring the real image, simulation is necessary. Through comparing the simulated image with the real one, accuracy can be proved. This paper focuses on building a three-dimensional (3D) model of a satellite and simulating its orbit according to the real data. The 3D images of the satellite should be acquired in specific positions and postures from a camera on another satellite. 3D Studio Max is the software used in the process to build models, simulate and generate images. It is a 3D computer graphics program for making 3D animations, models, and images. Also in the paper, stray light relevant to the satellite surfaces is analyzed. Tracepro is the software used in the stray light analyze to trace the light on the surfaces. It is an optical engineering software program for designing and analyzing optical and illumination systems. Stray light analyzing result is addicted to the 3D images, so that the images are more precise. Therefore, the final images can be complete images including light intensity information of the satellite surfaces which makes the images more real.
