I removed the tone warning of User:TheOtherSiguy, which seems unmerited. It is also unhelpful to have such a warning without an explanation of what is being objected to, which should be added on this discussion page. Will leave a note on this user's page.Puzl bustr (talk) 13:27, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
This article is focussing on a very limited aspect of speckle imaging. Much more importance this has in optical metrology / reverse engineering / non destructive testing.
Speckle images are used for systems to retrieve 3D data from objects, to detect movements, deformations, defects. Used in sytems for Electronic specle pattern imageing, Speckle photographic methods, Shearography, etc.
The article should be edited in the way that it leads also to major applications used in industry, and real life. Astronomy is only a very small scientiffic playground compared to industry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:55, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
Not Video Astronomy
Video Astronomy is not really the same thing as speckle imaging. It uses real-time stacking to improve the signal to noise ration of images in real time but isn't really trying to specifically address speckle issues. It's also distinct from lucky imaging as all images are used.
It is a burgeoning and increasingly sophisticated aspect of amateur astronomy that people like me are trying to find out more information about - I propose that a specific video astronomy topic needs to be reinstated. Stub Mandrel (talk) 19:24, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
I second this clarification. Video-Astrophotography - another name for Video Astronomy - has been around in it's own right since the 1970's in it's first tentative steps. Today we have highly sophisticated cameras, both analog and digital, with which to engage in this craft. Often recognized as both a science and art-form with room for many variations under a larger umbrella of a form of astrophotography.
Stay tuned for an upcoming major article on this subject. It is surprising to find it's lacking at this late date.
