from what I can tell with my StarShoot Pro, it should be easy enough to open the camera up, although the CCD Chamber will be sealed, and I dont know how they come apart from there.. so you'll be flying blind so to speak..

If you manage to get it open, use a lens cleaning cloth to give it a quick wipe, then using a magnifying glass to get a better look at it, inspect it for dust or other odd looking spots, wipe clean using a micro fibre cloth over a Q-tip with a drop or two of 99% isopropyl alcohol on it.. this will clean it up nicely... When re-sealing it up, make sure to do so in a very low humidity area.. there are many issues that can come from moisture getting inside the camera.. Another option here is to tape a small bag of silica gel somewhere inside the camera to dry out any moisture / humidity that gets into the camera while you have it open...

Best of luck mate..
