I'd like to have an SLT-mirror that flips up during the shot

Re: Here are sample pictures with, and without an SLT mirror

I agree partly but the parallel shift and therefore the chromatic aberration depend much on the thickness of the tilted plane plate and the SLT is very thin, so that the aberrations could appear more like diffusion and cause noise. Also spherical aberrations are possible even on a tilted plane plate, which could explain the loss of detail in the samples of the A55. Then, as I said before, also the material has a substantial effect on the refraction: The SLT is plastic., i.e. has a different refraction index to glass and, consisting of long and "chaotic" hydrocarbon chains also leads to more molecular diffusion than glass with its crystal-similar structure, which could also explain loss of detail and more noise. Sorry if I don't use the correct English terminology, I am not a native English speaker.
