Thanks Norbert,

I actually had quite a few zeros and removed them because I had an issue with
the "shadow" even showing up.

I am curious about the artifact (was that at the connection of the sphere and
cylinder?  That's why I switched from union {} to merge {}, to minimize that).

I also just deleted a bunch of stuff about the results of your scene, because:
It looks like _total_ crap in my qtpovray render window.
It looks pretty nice in my directory preview window, when I went to attach it -
it has a very light gray background.
It looks great, but different still, when I open the actual file and view the
result, where it has a very dark gray background.

Hmmmm.....

Thanks,

Bill
