I tried a 2200uF with a 150 microamp movement, but ended up using a plain
680 ohm resistor.

Thanks for the excellent suggestion!
I did a search expecting to find mirror galvanometers consigned to the
dustbin of history. Amazingly, they are still very much alive. One
company in Mass. produces various models, one with a small-signal step

applications that depend on the unique capability of high scan rate, wide
optical bandwidth and low loss.
