We verify that summing 2D DT geometries correctly reproduces the Polyakov action for the conformal mode, including all ghost contributions, at large volumes. The Gaussian action is reproduced even for cm = 10, well into the branched polymer phase, which confirms the expectation that the DT measure is indeed correct in this regime as well
