Paper Abstract

In recent years, speckle imaging has proven very useful for certain problems in single-aperture high-resolution imaging, including searching for faint stellar companions near exoplanet host stars and for satellite imaging. These developments have largely been the result of the availability of electron-multiplying CCD cameras, which allow for greater sensitivity and better photometric linearity when compared with other detectors that have comparable speed. This in turn has led to an increased use for speckle imaging at mid-sized and large telescopes. Some results of these efforts will be discussed, and the outlook for the future of speckle will be given.
