Image reconstruction algorithms for wide-field spatio-spectral interferometry require knowledge of registration parameters associated with low-resolution image measurements at various baseline orientations, such that the images can be registered to within the fine resolution of the final desired image. We have developed an image registration procedure that combines a nonlinear optimization algorithm with the sub-pixel precision of chirp z-transform resampling, particularly for rotation and translation, of bandlimited images with non-radially symmetric aberrations. We show the accuracy of this image registration technique on simulated images that have a complexity comparable to scenes observed experimentally with NASA’s wide-field imaging interferometry testbed. Registration to within a tenth of a pixel for translation and within three arcminutes for rotation is demonstrated at the largest simulated noise levels.
