    Anyone used? Like / dislike? Pros / cons?

    PS - no, I don't have an auto-cleaning camera, and can't afford an upgrade just yet!

    I've heard that the scope itself is rather good. The vacuum, on the other hand, has been cursed at by several people that I've met.

    In your place, I would actually save my money, and get some sensor swabs and eclipse fluid.

    Sensor Swabs and Eclipse work well, but I've found them to be unnecessary for most sensor dust. I usually start with a Giotto Rocket Blower. If that doesn't do it, I use a Sensor Brush charged with some canned air (static attraction). In the rare event that that doesn't de-blob my sensor, I wet clean using Eclipse. Those Sensor Swabs from Photographic Solutions work well, but they're $45 for 12 of them. When I ran out, I started using the Copperhill method with spatula and Pec Pads with two drops of Eclipse.
