Abstract
Optical interferometry and interferometric synthesis imaging are being recognized as very important to the future of high resolution space-based astronomy. In this paper, an overview of optical interferometric imaging is presented and the effect of starlight beam misalignment in optical synthesis imaging is studied using a computer model. These studies will be augmented by laboratory synthesis imaging experiments designed to investigate these issues further.
