    Well took the plung and bought a very clean 1208/2. After the shock of the size of this beast, I was amazed how quiet it is.

    As for the picture, well never had I thought this was possible, am still playing at setting up different blocks, but the nearest one I could hijack was fine for the D-ILA setting on my QS Pro.

    Now I understand 3D image, this thing rocks.

    Just got to get the bracket on the ceiling first, which will need to be mounted well as this thing is a monster........

    dear god,
    you'll need 10 people to hold it!
    last year i had to take down one wooden/light decoration (120kg) from the ceiling, and three of us were not enough.
    so be carefull , the whole garage could crash down :)

    good luck

    Well now have it on the ceiling and it has not fallen down.......

    Still got a lot to do on setting it up, roughed it in last night from scratch.

    Geometry is slight out so still some tweaking to do, green way out of square.

    Is there a way of squaring this up without using electonic's?

    Still well impressed with it, fantastic .....................
