How to clean telescope eyepieces

I show you how to clean telescope eyepieces in this episode. While telescope eyepieces are generally maintenance-free, it’s good practice to keep your eyepieces clean. Over time, the oils on our skin will make the housing of our eyepieces sticky and this can attract dirt. Oils can also get on the lens which makes for a blurry view.

Here are the tools I will use in this video:

1. Squeeze bulb air blower
2. Brush: http://amzn.to/2Cgd0dB
3. Cotton swabs
4. Microfibre cloth
5. Alcohol
6. Lenspen lens cleaner: http://amzn.to/2Cgd0dB

Nice video on cleaning lenses. I use the Canon Deluxe Photo Backpack 200EG to carry most of my gear. It has 2 side pockets, a large front zipper pocket for my sky chart and hand controller and about 9 dividers for my lenses, cords, powermates, diagonal, my zwo camera and polemaster. I also have the same equipment as you in the AVX and ES 102 APO. Keep the videos coming!
