Quote:The color perception at this PN is very different. I remember back when I saw this PN cyan to green with a 20" Dob. A month later we tried it with a 10" SC under bad conditions and all 6 observers saw the PN in a light blue. Don't ask me why. Later I revisit the PN with my 27" and a saw it again intensive cyan to green, even with 586x (AP 1,2mm).
