Quote: Quote:I have no idea why US vendors ship free to the lower States, but charge astronomical amounts to ship to Canada. I would have to agree to a certain extent, although I believe they are just charging cost when it comes to USPS.But, if they provide free shipping within the U.S., why don't they subtract the cost of mailing to the U.S.from the cost of mailing to Canada, therefore arriving at a more equitable shipping cost for Canadians? More to the point of this thread, Agena and Scopestuff get my vote for U.S. dealers.Eric
Quote:Easy for me. Astronomics, Agena Astro, Scopestuff. There are many other fine vendors, but these three get my calls first and in this order.
