Four 1.8 m outrigger telescopes were procured by NASA for use as part of the Keck Observatory Interferometer. Due to changes in NASA planning they will not be installed on Mauna Kea. The Navy Prototype Optical Interferometer (NPOI), a joint project of The U.S. Naval Observatory (USNO), The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), and Lowell Observatory, located outside Flagstaff, Arizona, would like to upgrade the current siderostats on the project to larger apertures. The preliminary plans for…

Outrigger telescopes for narrow-angle astrometry

The NASA Outrigger Telescope Project is a ground-based component of NASA's Navigator Program. The proposed project would utilize four to six 1.8-meter telescopes with co-rotating domes configured as

The Navy Prototype Optical Interferometer

We describe the Navy Prototype Optical Interferometer (NPOI), a joint project of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) and the US Naval Observatory (USNO) in cooperation with Lowell Observatory. The

First Observations with a Co-phased Six-Station Optical Long-Baseline Array: Application to the Triple Star η Virginis

We report on the first successful simultaneous combination of six independent optical telescopes in an interferometric array. This is double the number of independent telescopes, and 5 times the

The Mark III stellar interferometer

Abstract : The Mark III interferometer is an operational long baseline stellar interferometer on Mt. Wilson with four-possible baseline configurations from 9m NE-SW to 20m N-S. The interferometer was
