I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.

Quote:I'm curious if there actually are different colors out there. I suspect not, but...To me, my C11 Edge looks to be a very pale green that could be easily taken as a cream white. Try putting a white towel or index card next to the tube and see how that alters your color perception.
Quote: The two I have look kind of pearl white with a slight greenish cast. A very odd color I might add.
