Hey all. I know that the maximum resolution of a telescope directly relates to the size of the aperture and the wavelength of the light. What I'm wondering is what would happen if you took "pieces" of a much larger mirror from opposite edges and just used those pieces. Pretty much what this shows: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Interf_diagram.gif Would the resolution still be the same or not? I've read that it does, however my gut tells me that it's rarely as simple as putting a couple of mirrors together.
