Re: 564 AC ripple in beam intensity

Ok, then it's not the HV supply unless it's the power going into it.

This suggests two possibilities, one is that there's ripple somewhere on a supply line, (which you'd expect to be 120 Hz, not 60).  The second is ungrounded shielding somewhere, or a ground off, and inducing hum.  Does it get worse if you (a nice ungrounded 60 Hz antenna/source) get near (but not touching nasty stuff!) the circuit?

Yeah, the HV supply works around 45kHz on this one, but this problem is definitely happening at line frequency. If I line sync the sweep the intensity banding is stationary.
