Mount lift

Ideally you could fit your mesu on a Pier-Tech lift and raise it up through your roof hole when in use, but they are painfully expensive. Somewhere around $5-6k USD once you add adapters & controller! http://piertechinc.com/product-category/pier-tech-3/


I've had my eye on some cheap Chinese projector lifts as a possible alternative. No idea how they perform or how stable/vibration-free they are, but it would be great to test one out somehow...the one in this video looks feasible:
