Installed flocking in my 1000mm f/5 Newtonian reflector. It is a microfiber material with small vertical 0.5mm fibers. Installing this on the walls inside the optical tube assembly, results in increased absorption of scattered light, further improving contrast. To compare, I made these before/after-images, they have the same corrections and therefore display the exact difference in light absorption, black paint vs. flocking.
