THE 'TSSI' LENS CLEANING TECHNIQUE: "The Q-TIP Method"
This is the technique that will take some of the frustration out of optically dysfunctional microscopes. The Q-Tip method is quick, efficient, and easy to learn. Blurred images are usually the result of a dirty, scratched, or broken objective. "Black spots" are dirt particles in the eye piece, on head prisms, or mirrors. The Q-Tip method works on all of them. Lens paper will not get into the “edges” of the eyepiece or objective .
