Which lens you use depends on what size image you need. The standard lens, included in the DP1 projection kit, is the 85mm f/2.8. At a distance of 6½ feet (2m), this lens will project a 53" (135cm) diameter image. On the other hand, if you wanted a much tighter beam, or you needed a greater throw distance, you can use the 185mm f/3.5 lens at that same distance could project a crisp 16" (40cm) diameter circle.

Derived from the phrase "GOes Before Optics", gobos fit between your light source and lens to partly obscure or modulate light. Any great set designer will tell you that when lighting a scene, the lights you use are only part of the equation. Depending on the lamp you use, you will want compatible gobos and at least one compatible gobo holder. Not all standard designs available in this size. Glass gobos come in a variety of forms.
