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

It is too complex to explain to you

Translation: you can't explain it. Most likely because you have no idea what you're on about.

but it is very possible and has to do with the differences of light refraction in different materials (air, other material such as the SLT)

Differences in light refraction lead to chromatic aberration (or rather, that is the closest actual phenomena related to this vapid garble of a sentence). Are you claiming that the SLT mirror causes chromatic aberration? Could you provide some examples of this? Your precious DPR samples show nothing of that kind.

and possible (constructive or destructive) interferences by reflection of part-waves from the sides of the mirror.

What is a "part-wave" (you just made that up, didn't you?), and what sides of the mirror are they reflected from to where, and what is the concrete effect of that?

No need to get too scientific here IMHO - you may keep ROFL.

There is every need to go scientific here, because at present you're talking nonsense. You have made some rather outrageous claims about the SLT being in violation of the laws of physics, and you better back those up.

And it's not so much ROFL as a sad shaking of the head.
