  • We investigate the imaging performance of an interferometric array in the case of wide field, high resolution, narrow band, snapshot imaging. We find that, when uv-cell sizes are sufficiently small (ie. image sizes are sufficiently large), each instantaneous visibility record is gridded into its own uv-cell. This holds even for dense arrays, like the core of the next generation VLA. In this particular, application, Uniform weighting of the gridded visibilities approaches Natural weighting, with… CONTINUE READING
