I have always sent my cameras in for cleaning, however, this summer I leave for a long trip and I will need to clean the sensors myself.What are the best practices for this?Here is a web site, but it is current?

I have had very good experience with the Delkin Devices SensorScope system. Very easy to use and very effective. The scope is priceless in the verify sensor cleanliness. I was a little apprehensive to use it the first time, but it wasn't bad at all.
