"Second D600 Cleaning"

Here are the results of the second sensor cleaning on my D600 at 1700 images. The first was at 1000 images.

Here is the actual Blue Sky test image take at f/32 with the Nikon AF-S Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED lens.

Even this amount of dust was not showing up on my normal images.

I also did a test image using the procedure described on the Cleaning Digital Cameras Web Site:

http://www.cleaningdigitalcameras.com/inspecting.html

I used a light brown background color. Notice this is just as good as the Blue Sky test images and a lot quicker to capture.

I used the FireFly blower, the VisibleDust Arctic Butterfly 724, and the Sensor Pen for one persistent spec of dust. I did not need the wet method.

The VisibleDust 7x LED loupe made things go faster. It took four tries to get the following result. After I get more experience cleaning sensors, I probably will only need one or two tries.
