    A little plug for my supervisor and former group.
    After a couple of years work with a very clever (zero read noise) CCD and a bit of clever DSP programming they now have a system which takes a sequence of very short exposures, picks the ones in which the atmosphere is frozen to give an undistorted view then add these frames to give a deep detailed image.
