Images of Io by Conbolution

Here is to show how we can see IO with your scope. Some people say that they have ever seen the surface of IO. I have never seen that, so I calculated how we would see that by conbolution of an IO image taken by a prove.

HST's real image of IO

Comparing HST's real image with my calculated image, they are very similar each other, so I can say that my calculation is good for mu purpose.

Let's see 8-inch telescope's point spread function and IO imageby a probe.
