Yeah, I know there's a limit in zooming, just didn't know it was at max. Doesn't look that far away from screen.
Possibly, looking at your mount, could you add a metal adjustable slide or extender where it connects to your projector or at the arm where it comes down. Looks like it's going to need to slide forward between 12 to 18 inches. That would be much easier than remounting it. Maybe just dismount it and stand on a ladder and hold it there to you have the right position and then see if it will have to go pass your drop ceiling first.
