In this paper, we focus on the restoration of an image in mosaic active imaging. This emerging imaging technique consists in acquiring a mosaic of images (laser shots) by focusing a laser beam on a small portion of the target object and subsequently moving it to scan the whole field of view. To restore the whole image from such a mosaic, a prior work proposed a simplified forward model describing the acquisition process. It also provides a prior on the acquisition parameters. Together with a prior on the distribution of images, this leads to a MAP estimate alternating between the estimation of the restored image and the estimation of these parameters. The novelty of the current paper is twofold: (i) We provide a numerical study and argue that faster convergence can be achieved for estimating the acquisition parameters; (ii) we show that the results from this earlier work are improved when the laser shots are acquired according to a more compact pattern.
