We describe a new technique called "Differential Speckle Interferometry" (DSI) which uses simultaneous narrow band images of astronomical objects to study their structure. Simultaneous specklegrams of red supergiant and giant stars taken in the hydrogen lines and in the nearby continuum allow us to reconstruct the image of the extended chromospheres of these stars at resolutions of 100 nanoradians and better. We describe the instrumentation, analysis techniques, and results related to DSI.
