The Aussiemorphic Lens & New Sled


Due to demand for a "pass through mode", the Aussiemorphic Lens once again has a "SLED"
[manual only at this time] to allow the anamorphic adapter to be easily moved in and out of the light path for native 1.78:1 and 1.33:1 program.

Aussiemorphic Lens & New Sled
[Inverted model shown]

New Sled
The new sled is smaller [260mm x 180mm x 61mm] and does not include the large plate [as pictured below] from the original design. The new sled now uses ball bearing slides for a smoother action.

NB: I have kept these older images simply for demonstration purposes.


Whilst the new model does not include the mounting plate, the diagram below is a guide to show how to mount the Aussiemorphic Lens/sled combo in front of your video projector.
A New Plan
The diagram above shows the new sled mounted on a custom plate. In this diagram, the main plate is 16mm MDF [700mm x 600mm] with a 10mm Perspex used as a projector mounting plate [550mm x 500mm] which is then mounted to the main plate using bolts, washers, nuts [I'll use both wing and lock nuts] and compression springs. The design is large enough for projectors like the Benq W10000.

The New Projector Mount and Sled
The new mount is quite large. I have recessed the Sled back so that the front of the lens [when attached] is flush with the front of the mounting plate. The Sled attaches with two bolts [under the actual slide] to the main plate to allow easy attachment/removal of the Aussiemorphic Lens.
