    For anyone wanting to stop internal reflections in optical systems, such as adapters, telescopes etc, this material is about the best thing you can get: Protostar Telescope Making & Upgrading. However, it's not just good for the internals of optical systems, it's also an excellent material to use as a black backdrop, or shield where you want to stop any light refections from bouncing into you lens.

    I got a small piece sent to me by someone on the photomacrography forum for my microscope lens adapter and found it so good, that I ended up buying two full sheets to use as general dark backgraounds for macro work. This material sucks up light like nothing I've ever come across, it's literally like a black hole. It also comes with an adhesive backing that allows you to attach it to a rigid board or any surface for maximum adaptability. If you've been struggling with dark backgrounds, this is the product for you.
