Quote:I'd like to see a photo of the coolest and warmest of the bunch. The image should have them side by side, looking through them toward a white target.

Quote:As for me i find the so called warm view there is better color saturation to the image than using a cool tone EP.Best example find a nice open cluster with some rich Carbon Stars(red) have a peak in a EP with the Warm tone and then the cool tone EP you should see a significant difference.Cool tone the Carbon stars will look pale and the the Warm EP the stars will look vibrant.
Quote:On Lunar observing I find there being a very very slight advantage to warmer toned eyepieces as they deepen and darken some of the subtle maria features, however they also color the white ejects very slightly which I find a disadvantage aesthetically.
Quote:Most observers who comment on it tend to prefer neutral-cool eyepieces for lunar. Maybe that's because most lunar observers spend most of their time observing close to the terminator? Mike

Quote: Mars and Jupiter details are enhanced by warmer eyepieces to a degree, but NO additional details will be present,
Quote:As Bill said, we are talking about aesthetics or more to the point, presentation. On occassion, a new detail, not seen in another tonal eyepiece may emerge...but IME it is the exception, not the rule. Most of the time, if you go back to the other eyepiece, the detail is there, just not noticed because it was not "enhanced" by the tonal qualities of said eyepiece.
Quote: To me, the biggest difference seems to come from the overall quality of the eyepiece itself due to other factors...polish, coatings, glass etc.

Quote:How would cool, neutral and warm ep's differ on DSO's such as: Nebulas, Double Stars, Variable Stars, Galaxies and other objects. Which ep is best in your eyes for which object and why?
