Charge Shuffle Modes

I don't think I've geeked out like this in a while. I spent maybe 20 minutes on the sky trying out the various shuffle modes on the new detector. It was pretty easy to implement scripts to inter-weave spectral orders as well as to 'smear out' the orders to avoid saturation. Now we'll have even more ways of operating - polarimetry interweaved and spectroscopy / spectropolarimetry on bright stars sans saturation.

Yeah, I know this is Brian's pic and I know I've posted it many times.... but this thing survived and works!
