View Full Version : Your color for Vega

2007-Sep-23, 08:29 PM
In your eyes, what color is Vega? [Defocusing your scope is very helpful].

Images are certainly desireable, but let us know your color setting. I used 5800K for my setting, assuming that this would be our natural eye's best temp.

This comes from a post in another thread (http://www.bautforum.com/astronomy/17237-suns-intrinsic-color-5.html#post1073238) and is an off-shoot of heliochromology.

Do you recall the camera and settings?

Do you have blue eyes? [My son has blue eyes and sees objects bluer than I, but he is also younger with greater aperature, too.]
