Cleaning the sensor on my Nikon D70

Cleaning the sensor on my Nikon D70

After years of putting up with dust spots, which show up as ugly grey smudges on photos of nice blue skies, I cleaned the sensor on my Nikon D70. It took quite a few goes as you can see. Each of the photos here is an out-of-focus picture of a blank white computer screen which has then had its contrast increased hugely (by doing "auto contrast" on it) to make the dust spots show up better. The little round spots are dust. The other variations and the larger, slightly dark areas are tiny variations in intensity of the LCD computer monitor which have been exaggerated by the ‘auto contrast" step.
