Rebecca Bernstein (UCSC) showed up for a two-day visit. We spent a tiny bit of time talking about modeling spectrographs; se agreed with my position that you can't do the best possible data analysis unless you can synthesize your read-out images. She also noted that we know a heck of a lot about what can be happening inside the spectrograph. That information should come into the model if you want to get as precise as you can.

  1. what do you mean by "synthesizing the read-out images"? I spend a lot of time trying to understand/model spectrographs, would like to do better.
