Paper Abstract

This paper briefly reviews the current status of speckle interferometry including the recent extension proposed by Knox and Thompson and the limitations imposed by non-isoplanicity. The speckle interfero-gram is characterized in terms of its scale lengths and photon statistics. The various subsystems of the instrument are reviewed in detail in terms of their required performance. The overall S/N is defined and discussed in terms of both unresolved and extended objects.
