Darkening won't help CA (that's down the to the glass itself,) there's little to nothing you can do about that which won't cost more than buying a better scope.


 


As mike says though, flocking will improve contrast.

I blackened the edges of the lenses of mine and flocked the tube, but as I did both at the same time, can't say which was the most beneficial.

Sorry, yes, meant to say that :facepalm: both mods will help with contrast and help stop unwanted reflections within the scope it's self.
