I was just joking but if you're taking requests, I prefer instrument grey:

Rod,

I knew you were joking.  That instrument gray looks pretty good, but I don't know how it would look with the other scope I use at home, which is painted purple and has black accessories.

I actually thought about stripping the GSO focuser so all the trim would be silver.  I know it's possible to strip anodizing, but I didn't want to get into that.
