My D800 had fewer spots than your example, but too many. This procedure worked for me:

  1. Blow with rocket.
  2. Several passes with static brush.
  3. Several wet cleans with Eclipse.
  4. Final polish with Senslrklear (for stubborn oil).

It took some patience, but my sensor is clean now. I've been wet cleaning through an S2 Pro, D200, D300, D700 and now D800. Never damaged a sensor.

I have made this letter a rather long one, only because I didn't have the leisure to make it shorter. Blaise Pascal, 1623-1662

This is exactly the process I have used for the last 7 years on a D2x, D700, and D800 with no damage at all to the sensor.  Just stop and check the sensor after each step, if you don't see any dust then you are done and don't need to continue.
