I have used this rope light for over a year. It is close to the proper blue (if not exact), is dimmable and uses very little electricity. I like the look a lot as at 100% it is not too dim, not too bright. What I have done is wrap it around the inside of my canopy and I have it plugged into my AquaController. The moonlight come on at moonrise, off at moonset and dim to the percentage of the moon i.e. when the moon is in first quarter the moonlight would only be 50% lit.

Today the moonlights should be close to 100% as tomorrow is a full moon.
