Just got my shroud from Floyd Blue in Cali.
Makes my dob look much better (and bigger) than before.
It's a real nice shroud and it fits perfect. It should cut most of the internal light and improve views. Can't wait to put it to use. Does anyone know how much resolution/brightness will I gain?

Nice-looking scope!
Yes, Floyd Blue does the best shrouds in the universe!
As far as visual effects at the eyepiece, it probably depends on how much extraneous light you're dealing with at your location. At a dark sky location you probably wouldn't see a lot of difference but if you've got the typical amount of useless worthless lighting from the city and the neighborhood fogging up everything, you might notice a difference...
