CCD Cleaning and the SpeckGrabber

Having just bought my D100 and forced with the realization that a dirty CCD is a reality, I figured I would try the speckgrabber before braving it out with the Wendy's knife and cleaning solution...solution. I had two decent size particles clinging to the CCD and without the power adapter (speckgrabber says it works on active CCDs) I blotted both off within seconds. A bright shot of a white door confirmed the removal. The pro version is $9, the regular is only $2, save yourself $7, the only difference is the rubber handle. Afterwards, I took the sg and tested it out on a lens, the dust jumpes off the lens, it's pretty neat. To clean the sg off, you just put it under the sink. Now...I'll just wait until the CCD is too dirty and then we'll try the real cleaning.
