The image of a finite-size object defined by a general reflectivity function is found when the object is illuminated and is viewed through the same extended random medium modeling atmospheric turbulence. It is found that the average image spectrum contains diffraction-limited information about the object spectrum for cases of both a nondeterministic object and a smooth object. The results are found analytically and are supported by numerical calculations.
