Multiresolution transforms, including a wavelet transform, are applied simage visualization, image restoration, filtering and compression, × object detection. Variance stabilization is used, when appropriate, cater for common astronomical image noise models. We discuss idation of such methods in the case of astronomical image processing. A range of examples illustrate the effectiveness of this aproach in handling point source and extended astronomical objects.
