Patterns, or gobos, are widely used by designers in theatre, film, photography and television to create atmosphere, project scenery, and generally enhance the visual impact of their lighting.
Conceived by some of the world's leading lighting designers, the Rosco range presently includes hundreds of standard steel gobo designs.
To insure design integrity the patterns are etched using a precise double-sided process on stainless steel. The result is durable, high quality patterns which will withstand the extreme heat at the gate of ellipsoidal spotlights.
Rosco steel gobos are round to allow for rotation in the gate when aligning the projected image.
The standard "B" size is suitable for most fixtures with a 6" lens when used with a Rosco Pattern Holder or the holders of other manufacturers.
Trimming of patterns, where necessary, can be easily accomplished with a pair of scissors.
Do these hobo attach to the lenses? If so, do they come in #77?
Asked by: Jeffrey
You use this "gobo" (go-between) in a light called a source 4, or leko light, or any other projection ellipsoidal fixture like a daylight joker leko, or a LED source 4.
It's placed in a gobo holder that matches the size (in this case size b). Then you slide that into your light, there is an opening at the focal point of the light near the center for a drop in gobo.
It does not attach to the outside of a lens, and if you did that the pattern would not project in any recognizable way onto a surface.
They come in all sorts of sizes.

How do I connect it to the elinchrom kit reflector?
Asked by: Avrumie K.
The Rosco Standard Steel Gobo #7702 - Venetian Blind - Size B 86mm is designed for use with ellipsoidal stage lights, not for monolight usage. It is much too small to be used with a reflector designed for monolights.
