Be careful... a low supply will lead to low EHT (HV, final anode voltage, whatever you call it) which 
means the electron beam is less stiff. So it will be easier to deflect. This will compensate for the low
deflection amplitudes, depending on the monitor the picutre may grow, shrink, or stay about the same
