Abstract: This contribution describes the “spectro-perfectionism” algorithm of Bolton & Schlegel (2010) that is being implemented within the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III (SDSS-III), in terms of its potential to deliver Poisson-limited sky subtraction and lossless compression of the input likelihood functional given raw CCD data.
