Abstract

High-resolution imaging with reference to a widely separated star is examined. Peak tracking of the specklegram in the reference channel results in a high-resolution image in the observational channel. A binary star with angular separation of 30.5 arcsec is examined in white light, and the resultant image of the primary star obtained with reference to the secondary star is shown to have better resolution than the centroid tracking image by a factor of 3.
