I cleaned my own CCD (sort of)
Using Thom Hogan's recommended method http://www.bythom.com/cleaning.htm I used the first Sensor Swab to get rid of a whole bunch of dust bunnies, including one stubborn one that required a double scrub to make it disappear. Test shot indicated imperfect results, so I used a second Swab. Although it's not visible to me using 2.50 diopter reading glasses there is only one remaining. I think I can live with that and will use the healing tool if a shot that needs to be printed includes lots of white or blue background. Or until the next cleaning when I might get lucky and lift that last dust bunny off.
On another subject, the attachment was shot with the 80-400mm VR at full zoom f5.6 1/125, handheld, Fred Miranda's USM, Medium Intensity.
