I use Radial Gradient in Inkscape.
PROBLEM: Color at center of radiant is much darker than defined stop color, as shown by red arrow:

How comes?
How can I make the color at the center to be the one I want?

I thought it was just fading too fast, so I added an intermediate stop with the same color, but as you can see it is really a different color.

My problem was that the object's opacity was set to 75%.

Setting opacity to 100% fixed the problem.
