The Tuesday night before the South Pacific Star party was a treat although the rest of the Party was pretty good too but 'technical' issues let me with a lopsided RBG mix. This is from a composite of the best over that period. This has to be one of the best bright face on spirals available and always worth a visit and a sober hand on the saturation levels.
