Abstract
We present a method for interferometric imaging with arrays of large optical telescopes in the multi-speckle mode. The raw data were produced by simulating light propagation in the atmosphere, various pupil functions similar to the pupil function of the ESO Very Large Telescope Interferometer (four 8-m telescopes), earth rotation, and photon noise. Since a Fried parameter ro smaller than the telescope diameter was chosen, multi-speckle long-baseline interferograms were obtained which consist of many speckles with interference fringes in each speckle. Diffraction- limited images were reconstructed by the speckle masking method and the iterative building block method.
