I cannot find this projector online anywhere. Can you post a link? I am looking for an inexpensive projector just to get started with my portable dome.
Thanks!

I know this is an old thread. But, the topic is certain to always be current, as projectors are constantly changing.

I am looking for a projectors to use with a spherical mirror.  There is one thing I have not been able to discover.  Where does the projector focus?  Very early in my investigation, I had assumed that the projector would focus on the distance from the lens, to the mirror, and then to the surface of the dome. But, I quickly realized that this would only be true for a flat mirror, and that the spherical mirror would change things.

I want to be confident I purchase a projector capable of focusing at that distance. Is there a general rule about how to calculate the actual focus distance?  

Thank you for any advice or information.

I eventuallycame up with the correct search terms to find the answer. Paul Bourke commented on another thread ,Please;

" note also that the choice of projector has focus constraints. Assuming you are using the normal 60cm mirrors, then your projector needs to be able to focus on a flat wall such that the image is around 45 to 50cm wide. Whether you achieve this with projector position or zoom doesn't matter."
