The effect of correlation of counter waves on the quality of imaging through a randomly-inhomogeneous medium is analyzed in the paper. It is shown that correlation of the wave incident on the object and reflected one causes an improvement of a point-source image quality as well as an improvement in resolution of the image of a two-point object. The effect becomes stronger in the case when the transmitting aperture and the aperture of receiving telescope are close.
