Agreed. That is what I do (cycle the heat across the 0C point). I didn't want to remove the camera because of the logistics of going out there to get it. Not close to the house at all. Anyway, in my case, I decided to send it in for a tune-up and to check all the seals, dry it out etc.

Well you know what I do? I pull the camera off, put the clear filter in place, open the shutter and look. You can see any frost on the chip or cover plate. With the high humidity that we have had here, I always get some frost defect for the first 30 minutes. Sometimes I can get rid of it by cycling the cooler on and off a few times. Warm it up, cool it down and repeat.

Rolando, do you think it could be dew forming on the OUTSIDE of the chamber's cover? I baked my desiccant for FIVE hours and the mark, just like Steve's, was back within two days. We were having intense humidity in those days.
