as others have suggested a source 4 is probably your best best...you can buy interchangeable lens barrels for them so that if distances are shorter or larger you can accommodate them. they do have LED versions but are fairly expensive. Chauvet have their equivalent, but still around the 2k+/- mark but are surprisingly good, and they use the s4 barrels also.

the 15w versions at 20ft would be lucky to get a reasonable image from unless the room was really dark.

as far as custom gobo's, they aren't really cheap...but rosco are great, and usually a very quick turnaround

anyway if you are interested shoot me a message. i work for a production company in ontario that also sells/rent fixtures and can arrange custom gobo's.

How about the old Selecons with the right angle built into them.  I thought one of their selling points was that you could print transparency and use them in the pattern slot.  I think they used a GLA lamp, so they were probably as close to a S4 as you could get without having one.  I was never impressed by them.

Also the new Stand stuff seems really cool.  I got a demo of their House Light PL with the new LED engine and it was awesome.  They make an instrument smaller and larger than a S4 LED.  I would assume this is so they can't be classed with the industry standard, and they can fill their own niche.  It uses a single light source so what you see is mixed color from the source rather than the xmas light scalloping effect.  If I remember, the price ($1500?) for the smaller one, was way less than a S4 LED.

I bought a Time Square MR75 on ebay, also called gobo75, for $50. It's much smaller than an S4 and uses only 75 watts. It does the job very well. I get custom gobos from Gobo Source.

If I could find one of those for that cheap, I'd be in heaven.
