Quote:Ed, yea color is elusive for me with just 6" of aperture, it is more apparent at times than others. Often I have to de-saturate my sketches to get the amount of color just right erring to the side of showing a bit more so folks do not have to strain to see it. A C14 should show color better. Try adding color, Michael. It really is an exercise to get it right and present just the right amount of saturation. Plus, I promise you, you will being to notice something strange about what it means to be "white." Maybe some double star observing will help, it does me...is that star just plain envelope white or does it have a yellow hue to it?
I want to do more then just look.
