An optimum approach to smoothing the profiles of atmospheric parameters measured in the photon counting regime is proposed in the paper. The application of the generalized method of least squares is substantiated as well as of the choice of the order of a linear model and of the validity criterion for a priori setting the variance profile. A possibility purposefully setting the window of moving average is discussed.
