If you search under mould you’ll find the eyepiece!!
I’ve had it happen a couple of times and leaving the tribrach indoors in a warm room eventually shifted it, but there was always a slight dirtyness (presumably dead material) there ever more. Only stripping it right down would get rid of that.

Intresting thought – it might work, let’s see if somebody posts to say they have tried one.
BUT, it still won’t remove the dead detritus left when the mould dies – that’ll still need a strip down job. At least you’ve learnt to dry the gear out thoroughly after use; you won’t do it again.

Q tip up the bottom side will clear the field of view usually.

My mold guy said they use a UV light device to kill mold in duct work. I would imagine that would be a prefect solution for a tribrach. I would do it even if you believe the junk you’re seeing is dead mold, to get rid of that will probably take some deconstruction.
