LATEX style

  1. Bunch of \newcommand (and similar) defined after \begin{document} in the cmbs4_instbook.tex, although it doesn't seem to cause any failures, it feels like many of those commands should live in the preamble. See for example the ADS abbreviations. It would be useful to clean up this file to improve readability. I think it generally makes it easier for people to contribute to the document.

General comment


Acronym Table: Bibliography


Introduction and Conclusion


Telescope design


Receiver optics

  1. The beginning of section 3.6 has a long, useful introduction. Sections 3.5 and 3.7 are much more terse. I kinda liked the 3.6 intro...
  2. Throughout; inconsistent use of \sim and \approx for rough #s.
  3. The laser ablation section of this instrument book is titled 'laser ablated sapphire', but it discusses alumina, sapphire, and silicon.
  4. Is there mention anywhere of our technology with beveled saws?

Focal plane optical coupling

  1. The hyphenation usage is still a mess: band-width, bandwidth, band with, is one example, but there are many more.
  2. The use of the oxford comma is inconsistent
  3. Is it “a” with bandwidth ratio (e.g., "3:1 bandwith ratio” or “a 3:1 bandwidth ratio”)?

Focal plane sensor and readout
