Abstract: Long wavelength (λ ~> 350 microns) interferometric observations of solar system objects can yield important information on the nature of these bodies, including information on orbits, spins, surfaces, atmospheres, magnetic fields, rings, and plasma processes. This lecture will describe some of the peculiarities involved with observing of solar system bodies with synthesis arrays. These include planning, scheduling, calibration, and imaging.
