I will give it a try and see how the deflection goes.

Adrian on my sstv build i used a Chinese bug zapper it out puts about 7kv clean DC with a lm317 variable HV worked for me
Another idea if you are using mains transformer for the ac side of it put one the transformers Ac windings in series with a tiny mains ac transformers primary in series with it can control the ac output by the tiny transformers secondary as a magnetic amplifier so varying the ac to the multiplier.....when the secondary is open you get a lower voltage out of the tiny transformers primary ...if shorted full voltage out so very safe ...using high wattage resistors across the secondary you can control what you want the ac out put to be you could also use a light globe to with a resistor
a lot of video and information show dc controlling the transformer but this case you can get a nice range without it ,

Btw i used the bug zapper idea on this monitor as well
