Hi.
There are a lot of color images of Mars moons, in color, Phobos in a light magenta-pink color, and Deimos a bit yellowish.
I think you should modify your texture color from grey to something close to the real ones.

I believe Selden can help you on projection difficulties, so I suggest you to contact him... :wink:

In reality the moons of Mars are actually gray in color, not brown.

miranda showed up grey (without blue hue) but if the mars moons are grey... how come they showed up brown/tan?

Hex colors of martian moons using my TCT:
Phobos #4c4b48 (spectrum source)
Deimos #4c4946 (source 1, source 2)

Added after 6 minutes 54 seconds:
And it looks like I correctly guessed the color of Phobos two years ago

It is strange that the myth about red moons of Mars still exists. Both celestial bodies are gray, as has been said many times.
