Please find a solution, no Moop, no ladder/climbing/HEAT, No damaging the camera.

Current idea is compressed air, blowing the dust off seems doable. Just who is going to do the job.

I tried looking on YouTube for solutions. Not much but then again I didn't look long.

A long time ago, I saw a video from an in-car prospective, not necessarily NASCAR, that appeared to have a clear, rotating visior that, when soiled, would rotate a to provide a clean portion.

Perhaps the rotating hood was continuously cleaned as it rotated? First, pre-cleaned with an air knife water/cleaner and squeegeed to wipe the hood.

My method for cleaning my polycarbonate prescription glasses is a mandatory water pre-rinse prior to wiping. The pre-rinse removes the dust particles that scratch the plastic.

The Burn camera has a plastic hood. If it is not pre-rinsed, at minimum a blast of air, subsequent wiping will only scratch the hood degrading visibility.

Actually doing the work? Easily delegated to the appropriate individual within the "Org."

I know the rotating disk concept as used on ships,
Should become a rotating dome.
Next dust that comes by becomes static attracts and sparks.

Dome is thouroughly polished (we have had a documentary I think) no scratches whatsoever.
Has been sprayed with ... (some brand I do not remember) and should be static free.

We are waiting for the cleaning crew (MBM && former SuperMike, now without name) who are waitingfor the HEAT to lift them 500 feet into the sky (maybe slightly less).

Kind of bummed that The Man Base is pretty slick and substantial, yet The Man remains small per the recent trend.

Wouldn’t mind if they mixed it up and built a 100 footer from years past instead of the 40’ dude.

It beats that piece of crap rotating man from ‘16. It didn’t rotate because it was always broken.
And man I saw it up close and checked out the mechanical garbage that was supposed to turn it, I don’t know who was responsible for that but I hope they never design anything that really needs to work!
I think the 2013 Man was the greatest ever. But I also miss the old old man on the ground with hay bales days.

I think a good idea for Motorbike Matt would be to install a blowgun or two over the camera dome, running to a small compressor through a water seaparator filter like you use when painting, so it doesn’t spew gunk on the dome.
Then when it gets all dusted he could just give it a blast.

Lol there’s never a party around the Man except Burn night and there’s no schedule.
The real parties are various places you have to go be there to find out.
But they’re not at the Man.

You haven’t ever even been there.
How can you even pretend to know where the parties are?
Really the good ones are before and after the event.

Progress is a force of nature, parties to celebrate that.

Drones are the topic this year, they dance, they show the increadible buildings from all angles.

And exclusively streamed all over the world hacking every 3D printer and converting it to a hatchery.

The WebCast attempts to follow the Art-Tour

However there is some dust this year.
It may entirely possible we do not see any of the art the interviewed artist placed.
It was better next year.

Camera is in night- setting, the colours are visible, amplification is set to the max.
When the sun is up, the circuits will only produce a white like we had yesterday.
A whiteout only visible to Camp Envy :D

The perimeter guards are already in position.
We can see a clear circle of guards in the burner and ArtCars circles.

Scattered dots of lights will show bicycle dumps. Advice was to leave the bike at your tent during the major events.
