    Perhaps you're thinking of these, ,
    which were taken from Maui and obviously used some sort of atmospheric
    compensation technique. And a big telescope.
    However, as far as the Russian images go, the picture of their
    equipment suggests the telescope has a very modest aperture -- I'd
    guess well below a meter.  In which case the images, which look to have
    resolutions of a couple of tenths of an arc second, are close to diffraction-limited.
