I think you may have created a Frankenstein here. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
Guys, let me briefly share a few things with you.
1) I also own a short throw MC Cinelux.
2) The picture (with scope movies) does look good.
3) Problem is, the lens stretches the image horizontally by 2X.
4) As a result, scope movies are more like 2.66:1, than 2.35:1.
5) To regain the correct geometry, you have to drop about 12.5% of the horizontal resolution.
6) Whether or not you drop horizontal resolution, you have still magnified vertical pixel gap by 2X. This is visible in SVGA machines. It produced what looked like aliasing on my DL450. I've been told that on a D-ILA this isn't an issue.
7) To avoid vignetting, you need to have a very tiny image on the scope lens. This means you either need to buy a projector which already has a long throw, or you need to change the projector's lens. This change will lengthen the throw, perhaps significantly.
8) Don't forget this lens makes sense only if you use it to watch 2.35:1 (scope) material. For 1.85:1 movies, you will need to either remove the (cinemascope) lens, or drop a lot of horizontal resolution.
I was very impressed with the image through a cinemascope lens. But I think the Panamorph or ISCO lenses will give the best overall results, with the least effort. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/wink.gif
