The method for direct numerical simulation of random images of an extended object viewed through the atmosphere is developed based on a short-exposure optical transfer function concept and the phase screen approach. The model of point spread function is formulated that allows for the random movement as well as for the diffraction and small-scale turbulent blurring. The results obtained by testing with the Monte-Carlo method have demonstrated high statistical accuracy of the model proposed
