Paper Abstract

When astronomical speckle images are truncated by the finite size of the image detector, important errors occur in the estimated power spectrum and the Knox-Thompson cross- spectra. The errors and their effect on image reconstruction are calculated for an 8-component and a 3-component star model. The distortions and negative artifacts seen in the reconstructions of the star ADS 11344 are explained by image truncation. A method of estimating an approximate error bound given the telescope, atmospheric seeing, detector size, and sampling rate is outlined.
