Objective cleaning.

From:Ian Montgomery

        Many thanks for the information and suggestions. Yesterday afternoon I searched my books and last night trawled through the internet searching for information. Savile Bradbury in his Introduction to the Optical Microscope recommends absolute alcohol. Ether, mixtures of ether and alcohol, xylene, various proprietary cleaners and isopropyl alcohol (propan-2-ol) are all used. I'm swaying towards the isopropyl alcohol but before I commit myself I'll contact Zeiss. Anyone had any experience with isopropyl alcohol?
