They're very pretty. Lighting up telomeres by any chance? :) What are you looking for? Do you have to pair them all? That must drive you nuts!

I've not done much fluorescence microscopy but when I did I could still see them when I looked away with my eyes closed, like the spots were burned into my brain. I dreamed about them too.

Yes, it's a standard QFISH image. It's mouse chromosomes, so they are impossible to pair, I just tag p and q arms, ID what is a chromosome and what is not. Much easier than human chromosomes, which are bigger and have the nasty tendency to entangle themselves.
Oh and yeah, I dream of telomere spots...
