Most people are surprised by the distances you can get away with outside. For the last two summers I was using an Optoma HD71 to light up a 22.5 foot wide scope screen, and the projector was roughly 45 feet away from the screen.
I got the HD71 just for that use, because it is bright. According to the numbers, it should have looked bad. However, everyone, myself included, was shocked by how good it looked under those circumstances. I even had some other AVS folks over to enjoy and they were also surprised.
Every man dies. Not every man really lives.
