Thanks guys.

Ernie your description of how to find the lens position on the ceiling is pretty much exactly what I had planned.

Great minds think alike. Or, as MAD magazine once wrote, small minds run in the same gutter.

Heís using a motorized drop down screen in a bulkhead so at least I donít have to worry about the wall being plumb.

No, but you may have to worry about being parallel to a non-level ceiling.

I once did an installation where we had to run wire laterally along an indoor concrete-finished block wall. We used plastic ducting, ran it PERFECTLY level, then backed up and looked at it... only to find the ceiling was not level and it all looked wrong!
Iíll seek out the Optoma recommended mount. Actually I feel a little sheepish not seeing that in my own searching. Thank you.

Everything doesn't occur to everyone. Not every time, anyway.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
