Maintenance and Cleaning

The objective lens should be kept clean not only for good optical images but also to minimise laser reflections which will degrade the CAM1 performance. Remember that this is a precision optic and should be cleaned with great care. First gently brush away any dust using a soft brush or a piece of gauze. To remove fingerprints or grease, gently clean using a lens tissue lightly moistened with lens cleaner, or pure alcohol ( ethyl alcohol or methyl alcohol ). Observe sufficient caution when handling methanol & ethanol.

Also remember that the CAM1 contains carefully aligned optics so always handle with care!

When not in use cover and store in a place free from moisture and fungus.
