    The key to the disco scan lens is getting the proper distance from your scanners to the lens itself. The "stock" bracket I have is made for the actual projector I bought it with (Clubmax 1800). The problem of course with selling the discoscan lens is Pangolin has no way or knowing how far back inside a projector case someone's scanners are mounted. You may have to tweak and experiment with something to get the best results.

    Yes. Generally if I recall, that was the idea. Particularly with the first version. 2.0 seems to actually be able to be much further from the scanners.

    I followed these instructions on youtube and had no issues installing my disco scan 2.

    I initially had trouble getting the lens to focus, but it turned out to be a faulty unit and Pangolin happily replaced it. If you get yours mounted and still have trouble I suggest you reach out, their customer support is great. Just send them some photos of what's going on.
