Abstract
In September 1995 the Cambridge optical aperture synthesis telescope (COAST) became the first optical interferometer to produce an image of a stellar source from phase-closure and visibility amplitude measurements. These observations demonstrated for the first time the feasibility of operating long-baseline optical/near-infrared interferometers for high dynamic range high-resolution imaging. Here we present these and subsequent observations made with COAST and describe the methods used to analyze such data.
