where's that speck of dust?

Hello,

I have a speck of dust visible through the focusing screen. I haven't worried about, because it does not have any effect on images, so the speck and I have lived together. But now it's time to get divorced so I decided to clean. . :ugh:

I thought it was on the fosucing screen, so I cleaned it. But that speck was still there.
I thought it waw on the viewfinder, so I cleaned it. But that speck was still there.
I thought then it was on the mirror, so I .... But it WAS still.

Then I removed the focusing screen, looked through the viewfinder and there was that d... speck of dust.

Has anyone any suggestion to get rid of this? You know, it does not interfere on images but now it is just annoying.

It's on the prism? You can clean it in the same way you would clean the sensor, but it's a little tricky :\

That's what I've thought, but I know it could be dangerous!

Canned gas is your friend.
Just don't blow the shutter out of your camera.
