Gaussian aperture pupil masks (GAPMs) can in theory achieve the contrast
requisite for directly imaging an extrasolar planet. We use lab tests and
simulations to further study their possible place as a high contrast imaging
technique. We present lab comparisons with traditional Lyot coronagraphs and
simulations of GAPMs and other high contrast imaging techniques on HST.
