The aqua is nice and a good aqua. I know cameras can be deceiving but that blue looked amazing in the last video. Have a formula you would share? Do you feel that is an accurate representation of the color? That's the closest to a cop light blue I've seen in a while.

All colors has specific wavelenght, this is objective thing, but  the peoples senses differently the colors, this is subjective. Which for me is light blue,  for you is greenish blue. (or extrem thing, i have a friend, who almost is color-blind, he senses the colors barely. therefore i have made lot of titan, glitter&charcoal stasr in NYE shells, what he like :)  )
Other thing, the video made about 600m. other distance, other hue.
This star for me is a bit greenish light blue. :)

Thank you @braddsn :) The stars in my 4" shells have been 8-10mm if colored, and 10-14mm if tailed usually, except changing stars, these were 15-16mm. (4" shells was just the 3rd video, in 2nd video was 3")
The one color stars was cutted, prime: 1st layer KP hot prime, 2nd layer lift grade meal. (the cutted star lit easy).
The rolled stars prime: color/KP hot prime step layers - KP hot prime layer - KP hot prime/BP prime step layers - BP prime layer - and final, the "scrapy" BP layer, this makes successful ignition, even if the break is too hard.

The blue seems maybe too good, maybe because this was away from the camera. And that you said: "cameras can be deceiving", i agree with you.

But i think this is a good perchlorate blue. This is modified Pihko blue comp.,  KP/CuO/parlon/redgum: 60/15/15/10.

nt8 thanks for the great info! You were saying in the rolled stars prime, the final layer was a "scrapy" bp layer? What does that mean? Do you mean scratch mix?? Please explain this "scrapy" layer. Thanks!
