Compressed sensing(CS) which serves as an alternative to Nyquist sampling theory, is being used in many areas of applications. In this paper, we applied recent compressed sensing algorithm such as DALM, FISTA and Split-Bregman on astronomical images. In astronomy, physical prior information is very crucial for devising effective signal processing methods. We particularly point out that CS-based compression scheme is flexible enough to account for such information. We try to compare these algorithms using objective measures like PSNR, MSE et al. With these measures we intend to verify the image quality of reconstructed and original images.
