      Description

      Realistic quasar SEDs are needed in simulations to test the DCR algorithms. This ticket will add point-like objects with quasar spectra, appropriate fluxes, and a range of redshifts.

            Quasars have been added to the simulator, and the spectra appear realistic. There are strong features in the spectrum that should be detectable in measurements made on the DCR model, though for some unknown reason source detection and measurement on the DCR models appears to only recover the average spectral slope. Further investigation is required to determine why strong spectral features other than the slope are not recovered.
