I wonder if something like taking a picture with a digital camera on a
tripod a fixed distance away, and comparing the images would be useful?
Maybe too complicated but it would be interesting. It would really depend on
all the CRTs being tested in the same place.

You could take a picture of a known good display, and find a marginal
display then compare each CRT to those. It would be interesting if
imagemagick could compare them for brightness or clarity.

I have no idea if this is possible, and its probably too complex anyway, but
I thought it was an interesting thought experiment.
