Looking at Canopus I’m noticing some blue color. the star is a yellow white mostly in my reflector but the blue is slightly visible. Any ideas as to why? Is it normal because it’s so bright or are my optics at fault. I thought I’d ask the masses see what everyone else sees. Thx

What type of 'scope are you using? Reflector, apo, achromat, mak? And size. Do you get the effect with various eyepieces?

Scope used is a Mak and I’ve noticed it on version eps. Collimation is as good as it’s going to get.
