    If I have some (persistent) dust on my sensor that I would like to focus on by using the RocketFish blower in that area, how do I know where to blow exactly...if the dust (in the picture) is in the upper right hand corner...is it also the upper right hand corner of the sensor (if I am staring at it straight on)?

    Actually it's the bottom, because the image is reversed. Anyway, that doesn't matter. Just blow each corner and each edge once. And don't touch the sensor.

    Upper right in the picture becomes upper left when you turn the camera with the sensor facing you. But since the image is inverted and reversed, it's actually on the lower right. Or is it?
    What the heck, just blow the whole thing like musicaleCA said.

    If the dust is obvious, then you will see it on your sensor when you look at it, if not get a better lightsource.
