1) I'm not Canadian, sorry. But...
2) There are a couple of significant astro brands/manufacturers in Canada I know of--Antares and Kendrick Instruments--but I've not heard of any major Canadian astronomy mail/internet-order places. A couple suggestions:
- Search on 'canada' in this or other CN forums to find some of the Canadian CN'ers, and send a PM to one or more asking where/how they order their stuff.
- Antares has a list of retailers on its website, you might find someone near you there. Or, RASC (Royal Astronomy Society of Canada) has a web page listing Canadian astro stores.
- As for US order sites there are numerous. I have personally dealt successfully with Agena Astro in California, and I know they carry GSO and ES stuff. Hands On Optics on the other coast carries ES and some other peoples' barlows, I know from experience they're very good also.
Good luck and welcome to the boards!
