A program of high resolution infrared imaging at Palomar Observatory, is presented. The use of nonredundant masks both as an imaging technique and as a method of analyzing various aspects of the imaging system are investigated. In particular, the technique is applied to a bright star and binary system using a three-hole mask. The method is useful for understanding certain systematic biases in data, as well as in producing high quality images despite sparse UV coverage. The use of multi-r(o) apertures along with a large bandwidth does not significantly hamper image reconstruction, but provides significant extra coverage in the UV plane.
