I took out my Nikkor 70-210 AF (non-d) barrel-lens the other day and glanced through the lens and found a large amount of scattered dust and particles on the inside. I took off the filter and found the glass to be clean on the outside.
I hardly ever use this lens, but what am I to do to get that lens cleaned? I imagine I'd have to take it to Nikon...

Yes, to Nikon or another camera/lens repair shop qualified to work on a Nikon lens. I would recommend doing this as fast as possible, since the specs may be the start of a fungus. A fungus can eventually etch the optics of the lens. I would price the repair first, since it may cost more than a new lens.

Doug already said it, but I want to emphasize it: Make sure that the cost of repair is not that high since the 70-210 is not a very expensive lens.
