Re: "total" photon shot noise

OK, I guess I would have had to be there.

Some people are probably confused about what we mean by noise.  Someone who has never measured noise might not understand the difference between measuring a flat ROI and a fully-featured image.  Of course, the statistical uncertainty in a pixel value could be determined from repeated measurements on a single pixel, although it isn't always practical.

It's always difficult explaining technical concepts to a nontechnical audience, especially if they are also argumentative.  Since I wasn't part of the conversation, I don't think I have anything further to contribute.
