Abstract
We describe a speckle-based, telescope-position encoder that overcomes the need the ruled scales and gratings. Using the natural surface markings to produce a speckle pattern, the system is noncontacting and simply aligned. Imaging with a CCD and computing displacements with binary correlation, sub-pixel resolution can be achieved by parabolic approximation. Results of test on the 2-meter telescope at San Pedro Martir are presented.
