## Simulating high-contrast images
```MAIN.py``` is the main piece of code that simulates high-contrast images.
```MAIN.py``` creates high-contrast images, taking into account the partially corrected aberrations induced by the telescope & the instrument, as well as the effects of the shaped pupil apodizers and the focal plane masks.
These images do not, however, take into account photon noise, nor any detector-related noise.
The principal parameters of the simulation are:
- the path to the main directory, i.e., the directory in which ```MAIN.py``` is located

- the star mean hour angle over the observation
- the observation total duration [currently limited to 2h]
The other parameters correspond to the specifications of HARMONI & ELT.
If changed, the simulations will not reflect the physics of the instrument.
