Default Re: Colour mixing in mechanical television

It looks like a great project but being an old Physicist I have a couple of observations although I know absolutely nothing about scanning mirror receivers.

The mirror screw must have been designed to work with a specific modulated light source set at an exact distance from the mirror.

From what I understand it needs to be a slit source and the slit width will determine the horizontal resolution of the receiver.

The light source must be able to illuminate with equal intensity from all possible viewing angles the entire area covered by the rotating mirror and sufficiently outside the area so as to allow for viewing angle.

I don't think tight beams are going to work well from 6 inches away you need something that evenly disperses the light with a mask over it.
