We generalize a reliable and efficient algorithm, to deal with the case of spatially-variant PSFs. The algorithm was developed in the context of a least-square (LS) approach, to estimate the image corresponding to a given object when a set of observed images are available with different and spatially-invariant PSFs. Noise is assumed additive and Gaussian. The proposed algorithm allows the use of the classical LS single-image deblurring techniques for the simultaneous deblurring of the observed

Its performance and limitations, also in the case of Poissonian noise, are analyzed through numerical simulations. In an appendix we also present a novel, computationally efficient deblurring algorithm that is based on a Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) approximation of the variant PSF, and which is usable with any standard space-invariant direct deblurring algorithm. The corresponding Matlab code is made available.
