Hey guys, i have a BenQ W1060 , I have had it on a dodgey stand and wheeling it out of my storeroom when i wanted to use it, but no more! i want to roof mount it! Everything must be external, i have no roof access due to aircon ducting and a firewall in there.
I am running the cables across the roof and down the wall in one of those sealed cable tubes.

I am after advice on mounting the projector. Im going to have to find the sweet spot for it to sit, i know roughly, its the same place i usually have it setup. But on the roof =p.

Any tips on getting it as perfect as possible without all types of gear?

In my own mind im going to be up on the ladder. find the right distance i need to fill my 120" fixed screen then mark it on the roof. Mount it then adjust the angle etc. I hope that is right. I have a beam finder. and have tested it out, there is a beam where i want to mount it. i hope its big enough!

Cheers guys

Use the projector calculator at projector central to get the right height, and then find a stud close to that to mount. You can use zoom to get the projector perfect.
