This work aims to investigate the systematic uncertainty in gamma-ray spectra arising from saturation effects from bright images reconstructed by VERITAS. The goal of the work is to improve or validate the energy resolution used for deriving gamma-ray spectra in the sub-TeV to multi-TeV energy regime with VERITAS. Saturation from multi-TeV gamma-ray events affects the image brightness used to reconstruct the energy of the primary gamma ray, and potentially biases the energy estimate. We discuss a method for investigating the energy resolution bias in these multi-TeV gamma-ray events by looking at showers with large core distances that do not saturate the cameras.
