Cleaning scope and EP's

What's the best thing or items to use to clean dust and what not off my scope and EP's? Things are getting a little dusty, I think from sitting around not being used for the past 2 weeks due to clouds and liquid gold.

Hey Karl,

If it's just surface dust and particulates then use a camera cleaning bubble. It looks like a little whoopy cushion and it will just blow the dust off. For more serious cleaning of lenses and mirrors, there's some good videos on YouTube that show you how using cotton wool and distilled water.
