NPS_1stcontact3_200pxPhotonic Cleaning Technologies introduces First Contact Polymer Solutions ($110), which cleans your optical surfaces without leaving residue. Simply spray, brush, or pour the polymer solution on your telescope mirror or lens. Once dry, First Contact Polymer becomes a strong, flexible film that you can then peel off to remove any fingerprints, dust, pollen, or other contaminants without damaging delicate optical coatings. The Red First Contact Starter Kit includes a 15-millimeter bottle with applicator brush, one 29-ml dilution spray, two 29-ml refill bottles, and 30 peel tabs for removing the dried polymer film. See the manufacturer's website for larger quantities and other options.
