Abstract: Small telescopes have the potential to be connected into an interferometric array to effectively make a significantly larger telescope. Interferometric arrays utilizing small telescopes, particularly the Center for High-Angular Resolution Astronomy (CHARA) Array, are at the forefront of optical interferometry with observations leading to accurate stellar radii and even images of stellar surfaces. Here, the challenges and advantages of small-telescope, long-baseline optical interferometry will be discussed, alongside the current status and recent results from small-telescope interferometric arrays.
