Hi all,

I am getting a lot of movies in the mail today and just realized that when I have a longer throw, the image seems to be unstable (a lot of gentle up and down, as if in a car on a bumpy ride) [Frown] ... I guess it isn't noticeable when using a long throw lens in a short throw situation as it wasn't bad at all before. I have a screening party this weekend where a lot of friends are going to be around and I will have a big room with a long throw so was hoping if anyone could PLEASE PLEASE lemme know if they have any suggestions. Thanks again and hope you are all having a good weekend [Smile] !!!

Best,
ET

It's all in the threading and tension setting, Vidar my friend [Smile] ... If you follow the illustrated red lines for threading to the t, you will have a very stable picture [Wink] ... Please lemme know if you need more info on this (I didn't know you had a Pageant btw [Smile] ...). Also, I was real excited to hear how you found the rest of my prints but you totally disappeared [Frown] ... Your turn, good sir, so "please do tell [Wink] !!!"...

Not sure I ever need it, but if I do get my Pageant fixed, it's nice to know :-)

Thanks
