Yes, since the instrument setup has to be the same for the instrument
calibration to be valid.

Sorry, no - there's no facility for measuring ambient light using the Spyder 2,
as it doesn't have a calibration for this. The Spyder3 (like the Huey) has a
simple monochrome ambient sensor, and therefore is no good for measuring
ambient color temperature, just brightness. The best colorimeter in this
regard is probably the i1d3.
