We explore how well any given IRAC data reduction has removed the above sources of correlated noise.  It is challenging to remove systematics without removing time-varying astrophysical signal.  One possible metric of final achieved precision is to examine the RMS as a function of binning scale and compare that to the photon-noise limit.
