Forgot to say that if you get them from Progressive Automations Ebay store they regularly run deals on the actuators at less than $80 each. You are correct if I had to get them at retail I would have...

Does anyone know what throw distance I would need for the Schneider Cine Digitar 1.33x? I have found info on the Sony VW50 but not the 600 (I am at about 17 feet with my UH480).

Oh yeah, sorry.
Forgot to add that in if you don't have an A-lens.
If you have an A-lens could you use the actual square footage of the scope screen to have it come out correctly?
