    I saw a billboard ad for Colonial camera and hobby just today for the first time! Didn't know about this place. Was driving on I4 and saw the word TELESCOPES appear. We like that. Congrats on your 6SE.

    Yes Terri, I bought a Celestron 6SE at Colonial Camera and Hobby in Orlando, as well as an accessory kit with additional eye pieces/barlow/filters. I guess Since there is nothing in/around Tampa, I'll go back tomorrow looking for a power supply, t-adaptor for my camera and carry case. They had several telescopes in stock.

      I would like to know this myself. I have been ordering online, Ebay, Craigs List and the Celestron site direct. Sometimes you just want to go get it now and get started.

    Ok thanks. In Orlando there is Colonial Hobby and Camera, with a pretty good selection of telescopes and accessories.

    I think your best bet is to try online. Celestron, or other vendors that sell Celestron accessories. You can also pick up used items if you become a member on CloudyNights.com or Astromart.com. Check out their classified items for sale. Cloudy nights has a long list of links to other suppliers/sponsors

    Sorry for the lapse in communication. (computer's down) Yes as always, it's weather permitting for telescope viewing.
