I noticed some spots in my last photos that I took with my D3.
So I took a look and, sure enough, I can see them on the sensor.

Since I have access to a cleanroom, a microscope, wipes that will not shed, and even a low-pressure nitrogen nozzle, I would like to try and remove the spots myself.

Does anyone know if either IPA or distilled water will work as a cleaning solution? Or is it time to bust the lock off my wallet?

Thanks

I use this set: swabs, blower and loupe and it's so perfect that I clean the sensors for my friends also and I have to order new swabs :D ... I use this even in the field outside (I usually have 2-3 swabs in my photo bag ..)
