@digicam I picked a subject with a lot of built in spots to hide my sensor spots. Also, just got off the phone with B&H and ordered a sensor cleaner kit. About time!!πŸ˜€

Steve you need to get out of that prison! LOL. Just kidding - I love when you give us chills. Congrats for POTD!

@steve_zasadny , Congrats on yet another POTD. What sensor kit did you order? Are you familiar with cleaning a Sensor? Does the kit include a Sensor Scope?

@digicam it is a Delkin Sensor Scope. I had one before but left it in a motel on a trip. I have used it before and it is quite simple if you’re careful. As you have seen, I have been a little delinquent in keeping up with sensor spots. I change lenses in the field a lot and the sensor does get dirty often. Probably close to being able to grow tomatoes lately. lol. But I have another cleaner scope now and will get back in the saddle and clean it up.
