Looking down the business end of the scope, you can see the difference that the flocking paper makes. Note how the paint inside the SV70ED reflects the text inside the dewshield. Granted, this has different paint finish, still the lesson is learned.
During this time, I refigured the bracket holding the camera in an effort to position the camera aligned with the center of the scope. It's better than before. I may still get into modifying the camera.
To come: Performance under the stars.
