Cleaned my sensor…

I noticed I had dust on the CCD of my digital camera so I decided to do something about it. I bought a cleaning kit with Eclipse2 solution and 4 cleaning swabs (http://www.2filter.com/prices/products/Sensor_Swabs.html) from Vistek in Toronto for ~$30. I was nervous about it at first…but it’s really not that bad.

Here are the before and after shots with the camera looking up at the sky at F22. There appears to be one dust spot left after the cleaning. Maybe I’ll try once more to see if I can get it off too.
