Abstract
The Delft Testbed Interferometer (DTI) will be presented. The basics of homothetic mapping will be explained together with the method of fulfilling the requirements as chosen in the DTI setup. The optical layout incorporates a novel tracking concept enabling the use of homothetic mapping in real telescope systems for observations on the sky. The requirements for homothetic mapping and the choices made in the DTI setup will be discussed. Finally the first results and the planned experiments will be presented.
