Can anyone help me determine the range of image alignment correction when the 9000 is ceiling mounted with a 11.5 foot throw. Also given the above, what diagonal image measurements will I get with min and max zoom.
If you mean by image alignment, moving the picture up and down on the screen. It is done mechanically and, per a demo at LaserLand in San Jose, one full screen height up or down from the center position. I didn't see that occur - I found it a bit hard to believe.
If you mean keystoning, there is a huge digital keystone adjustment, which I did see. It looked good.
This projector, which looked fabulous to me, has a great deal of flexibility as far as placement goes. Check it out, you are only an hour away.
Re Sharp's formula for 16:9 screens, where x =the diagonal screen in inches, the maximum distance is
(0.05510x-0.04593) times 3.28.
Minimum Distance is (0.04068x-0.04068x-0.04369) times 3.28

I bought a projector from LaserLand and am VERY pleased with it!!!
I mounted mine on a shelf 14' back and I can attest it does adjust about 1 screen size. I was off by about an inch and elevated the back and used keystone to adjust it just two clicks and it is perfect now.
From the manual (for 16:9 screens) you can get the following at 11.5 feet (range of 15' - 11'1''):
Max Screen 84" diag (73x41) and your lens center can be 3.5' from bottom edge...basically a screen width)
If you can get to 12'1" you can get to a 92" diag (80x45) which is what I have and it is quite nice.
My only suggestion is that if you have any ambient light get a screen with some gain. I have 1.0 and with any light it gets washed out, they showed it with a 2.5 and it looked great even with some light. Perhaps something in the middle if you have some light.
