They have pearl in them,which makes them look green,I have painted many cars similar colors,depending on what color pearl is in the mix is what gives them the iridescent look from differant angles.

I did this last fall for some incorrectly colored dew shields I got for my two Edge's. See this thread:

Celestron EdgeHD White Color Match Thread

As others have said, the color is actually quite green and is a pearl. I like the color scheme a lot.

I got a high-end auto shop (Porsche, etc.) to do mine and the finish is incredible! Hard as rock, silky smooth, mirror shiny, but not an exact match. I was hard to match due to the curved surface and unique color. Pretty close though. Was not exactly cheap though given the number of coats and that it's an epoxy type paint.

Clear skies,

"It can be any color, as long as it's white..."

I've never owned/used/looked through an Edge HD, but they sound excellent

My new one though is a kind of sparkly grey/white/silver finish...

Have Celestron changed the olour recently?



Lets see a picture of your new scope so we can see if it's different.

someone care to find one of those paint index colour cards? you could match it up, and paint your house the same colour because you love the Edge HD so much..
