Pec Pads

These are bloody brilliant. I bought them from the other day. I've been having a few problems cleaning my Skynyx camera recently using cotton buds, they always leave dust bunnies behind. I found these on a camera cleaning site and they work an absolute treat.

This is nice, I've seen other versions that you can download, but this is a website. It has loads of scopes and cameras for both visual and imaging. Neat!
