Now Dare To Clean Advanced Optics Some Award-Winning Advice: Blow It Away!
Somerville, NJ (February 2002) – Someone from Palo Alto, Ca., probably has a credible claim to provide sage advice on cleaning delicate optics.
As Virend Charan explains it, owners of top-notch optical instruments are in a bind. “At the time of cleaning, a lens is most vulnerable to damage — damage that can not be repaired.” Yet dirt and grease that build-up on mirrors, lenses or eyepiece lenses can degrade image quality.
Charan’s prize-winning solution: If dirty surfaces impair performance, use the compressed-gas product, Dust-Off®, to clears away dust without causing friction on delicate surfaces. “I have used this method for over three years without adding a single scratch to the surface of my mirrors and eyepiece lens,” he adds.
Charan’s advice qualified for one of 101 portable CD player in a new-uses contest sponsored by the manufacturers of Dust-Off compressed-gas dusters.
Dust-Off was invented in the 1970s so news photographers could safely clean negatives and camera equipment. The Grand-Prize winner, announced last month, won a home electronics package worth $3,000 for his suggested use: cleaning automobile air vents.
