Just an update--I spent some time putting the prisms into a case and getting it up in front of the projector--Completely thrilled at the results so far.
I had used rotatable prisms to start because I was hoping to get stretch from 4:3 to 21:9, but it turns out it made everything needlessly complicated. When I paired the two lenses together (Panamorph and DIY), I decided to go with the permanently mounted prisms, but not having the ability to adjust the angles was a bit of a bear. I had to keep putting the prisms in the case, screwing everything down tight, then when the angles weren't right, had to remove the case to adjust the prisms! I must have done this about 6 times to get the prisms dialed in correctly.
Anyway, next step is to get some kind of mounting system for the case on my ceiling for the projector.
Will supply some photos soon.
(Of course, this can be done without the Panamorph, with four prisms in one case...)
