I have only had my D100 for about a month, but I detect a piece of dust on the sensor on some of my shots. So, I will enter the realm of CCD cleaning faster than I thought. Might as well get used to it.

I'm a bit nervous about it. I plan to use PecPads and Eclipse. My question is why is the AC adapter necessary for cleaning?

Second question: can I seriously damage anything *if* I'm careful? I understand I won't be cleaning the sensor itself, but merely the AA filter in front?

Please help calm me. I recognize this will be a part of owning this camera and I'm not willing to send it to Nikon every time an annoying piece of dust shows up.

Thanks,
Keith

btw: I LOVE this camera.
