Abstract

Identifying and removing errors in both the u,v plane and the image plane is essential to achieve the highest quality image. In this lecture, I describe how to recognise and remove some of the most common imaging artifacts. In particular, issues associated with wide-field imaging are discussed.

This chapter has drawn heavily from numerous lectures given at previous synthesis imaging schools available online as well as the VLA white book (Synthesis Imaging in Radio Astronomy, editors: Taylor, Carilli & Perley).
