If anybody needs some tak green touch up paint here's the ratios I got that works for me from bunnings after a few trial end error. One is gloss, one is flat. If you want the desired sheen mix 50/50, that's what I do or different ratio to achieve the satin finish you want.

Problem is Marc, that works for THAT telescope....the green I have works on your CN, but is not close enough on my FSQ.

You need to custom mix EACH time. Or best, repaint ALL the green when you do it.

Fun eh...you need to see the trouble I went to for the CN's ochre tube...insane

For sure but that will get you very close to final tweaking. They can do that at the counter to match exactly. Your mix is a little greener than mine. I can't believe I'm actually saying that...

Well, that's the colour your parts are, so you'd better use it

I found that a mix of Blyfgoam Glosd, Ice Gray, Stoomy Brown and Snowbonk worked well for me

Snowbonk's on the money and I like the sound of that.
