Yes. Procedural galaxies and quasars start with RG, stars, planets, planemos and brown dwarfs outside a star cluster starts with RS, stars, planets, planemos and brown dwarfs inside a star cluster start with RSC, clusters with RC, and nebulae with RN.A-L-E-X wrote:Source of the post I don't think a saturation slider is really necessary anymore as I've found B type stars to look quite blue, it's just that when you look at stars from a distance they all seem to be white. When you get closer they take on a deeper color- I suppose this is good because this is how things work in nature.
The "it's just that when you look at stars from a distance they all seem to be white" thing is caused by the desaturate dim stars setting in the graphics menu. If you don't want stars with low apparent magnitude to go white, try setting desaturate dim stars to the lowest possible, 0.01.
Also A-L-E-X, you seem to multipost a lot. I thought you needed to know that you can edit your posts with the pencil icon in the upper right of your post.
Thank you! I am also wondering if SE uses the B-V index to determine color. I saw it isn't mentioned under info, so having the B-V index listed under info as well as the H-R diagram for the field of view might be a good idea. I've found that when you want to search for extreme stars, it's easier when you can see it in the H-R diagram, click on the dot in the diagram and that shows you where in the field it is (and vice versa.)
