LCD Test image and pixel-level detail

So I’ve managed to get a semi-working test pattern image up on the LCD.

Here are a couple shots:

If we zoom in about 10 times, we can see how the LCD really works, on an individual pixel level:

Pretty challenging to get a decent image out of this, but here you can see the individual LEDs that make up the TFT screen that we’re using….. Interesting that the roughly-purple color comes from Blue and Red mixed…. except they aren’t mixed, just very close together.

Here’s an idealized image…..looks pretty similar to mine!

I actually don’t think that the colors above in my test image are right….there seem to be documentation problems for the pinouts on the BEMICROMAX10…….
