* Note: The space marked RFU, reserved for future use, will default to the Random mode. Users wishing to use the Random function are cautioned to program with the values listed for Random and Random at Mirror Speed only, so that future protocols that make use of this RFU space do not necessitate reprogramming any shows.

** Litho Notes:
  - Indexed mode: wheel position will snap to center of apertures.
   
  - Blink mode is the same as Indexed mode, except that the shutter will close during aperture-to-aperture movements
   
  - Forward Spin and Reverse Spin modes: Rotational speed varies from slow to fast as the Litho Rotate High channel varies from 00h to FFh.
   
  - Litho Scan: Scan dwell time is set by the Litho Rotate high, an 8-bit value.
