Actually I think Courtney is the winner for dirtiest mirror.

That is good!-Isn't there a Swiffer for primary mirrors? HA! 

 

Unless it's real bad I can't tell a clean from a dirty by use. George has the dirtiest mirror in the club and I defy anyone to see a difference, on the same object- side by side with a clean mirror scope.

Is there a quick and easy way to dust off the primary mirror?

The instructions for my Orion XT8 classic dob tell me to remove the primary mirror and soak it soapy water and alcohol and wipe clean with cotton balls. Sounds like too opportunities to screw up, scratch and/or drop my mirror. I'm scared.
