Abstract: Motivated by attributes of images from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Wide Field/Planetary Cameras (WF/PC-1 and WFPC-2), in this paper we report on massively parallel implementations of maximum likelihood image restoration with spatially-variant point-spread (SV-PSF) models. We use an interpolative procedure to realize a SV-PSF model from sparse reference data, and realize the large amount of concurrency inherent in the restoration computation by employing a Trussel & Hunt-style segmentation of the restoration task, distributing the work load on a network of UNIX workstations using the public domain PVM system. We give examples of application of the restoration code to recent WFPC2 observations of HH 47.
