The methodology for interferometry looks fairly hairy for most people who may not be acquainted with Fourier analysis. I think that's almost a requirement. Would the explanation be simplified and useful if the source consisted of a single frequency for say two observers? For example, would it substantially and meaningfully simplify the reconstruction from the readings of a circular image of say 1/10 of a degree across?
