    That isnt a controlable moving head. It simply scans left and right.
    There is no vertical movement apart from manually setting the height.

    Ever heard the saying 'Running before you can walk'?

    I think you should focus your time, effort and finances on sorting out what you have already, not thinking about 'exotics' like that. I think that money would be better off spent on a decent DAC (along with whatever money you want to spend on a DMX controller) or at the very least a nice case, and get yourself off to the start you should've done in the first place.

    I could, but you may have perceived that as encouragement.

    They move an already dangerous beam around, in an even more dangerous manner (IMHO)

    The thing that often gets money cut when buying cheaper is:
    - quality checks
    - safety checks
    - safety stop / failure check hardware.
    - IR leaking
    - overal durability
    - overall performance

    For the desk I would advise a Grand MA


    For the lights I would advise some Martin Mac 2000

    Just google the prices to see if it fits your budget
