What is Gobo

A gobo is a template that light shines through to project an image onto a surface. The term “gobo” is an acronym that stands for “GOes Before Optics.” Gobos are used in specialty gobo lights that are designed to shine through the gobo template and project the design from the template onto a surface.

Gobo projections may get affected by many factors viz.
1.The temperature and intensity of the surrounding lights.
2.Environmental lighting
3.surface property & colour that the image is being projected upon
4.angle,distance of light from surface.

How big will the image be?

Image size is dependant on a number of things. None of which has much to do with the gobo it self.
It has to do with the beam spread of the lighting fixture you are using and how
far away you are from the projection surface.
