Apollo metal gobos are laser cut from 8 mil stainless steel with a high level of nickel and chromium.  This type of steel produces a very durable gobo with fine detail image and a long life.

Gobos are like stencils for profile (ERS-style) lighting fixtures, allowing light to shine through certain areas and project a pattern.  The color of the projected image can be changed by adding a sheet of lighting gel.  By adding a donut (color frame with smaller hole) you can increase the contrast and clarity of the projected image.  Full-size Source Four fixtures also offer an EDLT lens tube option designed for high-quality gobo projection.

The size of a projected gobo image depends on the beam angle of your fixture, a larger beam angle will increase the gobo size diameter, however the resulting image will appear dimmer (with same fixture, since the light is spread over a larger area).  Gobos come in many different sizes for a range of fixtures, the table below gives a summary of the most common sizes that we list online.  Not sure what size to order?  Just make a note of your fixture make/model and we'll make sure the gobo gets sized correctly¹.

  • ¹ Not all gobos can be made in steel sizes under 86mm (B size).  This is usually due to intricate/detailed artwork, but certain fixtures also require the use of glass gobos.
