OT lightsaber colours

I need a definitive answer from our resident restoration guys. What were the colours of the various lightsabers in the OT in the theaters?

Were Luke and Ben’s blades blue, light blue, or cyan? I always remember Luke’s blade being sky blue in SW, but a deeper “true” blue in Empire.

Was Vader’s crimson, orange-red, pink-red (always seemed pink-red on in Empire, but more crimson in Return)?

While you wait for one of the experts to chime in here, there may also be some helpful info re the colours of the in the lightsabers in the ‘Gadgets & Gizmos’ section under the ‘Original Trilogy Discussions’ part of An Index Thread for General Star Wars Discussion… - good luck with it mate.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Thanks. I’ll take a look.
