A 218 mega-pixel synthetic aperture was collected by raster scanning a CCD detector in a digital holography imaging experiment. Frames were mosaicked together using a two-step cross-correlation registration. Phase correction using sharpness metrics were utilized to achieve diffraction-limited resolution.
