Simple but effective custard..
I use the same idea with my HD65, only I have compression springs between the projector and the top plate..

i'm sorry but i can't - i am limited by the width and and depth of my room to the size mentioned before.

here is an album from a uk user of the hd200x which is pretty much the hd20 in a black casing.
i dont think i will be able to take pics to this standard...

the compression springs is a great idea.
i had considered using some more wingnuts underneath the plate aswell to provide similar stabilty to the springs you mention. the unit works fine without so i have left as is.

just though that i would mention that the lower plate of the two has holes about 5cm wide to allow for minor movement of the top plate and PJ horizontally and forwards/backwards.

Ok, no problem, I understand the limitations.

About the pics of UK user, them look great!!!!!
Do you know the screen size of him? or do you know how to contact him?

Thank you for your help?

i cant remember the exact size but its smaller than mine so i think that does not help you.

as i said before the hd20 will work for you if you are happy with the brightness of the hd65.

That idea might just solve my problem!.
With an anamorphic set up, it's very difficult to fill the scope screen without using any zoom, if the projector is not quite exactly the right distance from the screen..
It only needs that small amount backwards or forwards to get the exact position..

At the moment I only have a single plate above the projector, so adding a second plate with large holes, will give me that fine adjustment!
Thanks for the idea custard..
