I placed a "wanted ad" in the EP section awhile back.. got a reply back from a gent. in CANADA... saying he had the EP I needed and was asking $40.00 ...I figured that was about what it was going for here on the Mart... he wrote back and said there would be an additional $8.00 for postage (almost double what it costs here in the USA).. Today I got an e-mail saying my check for $48.00 had arrived...he added there would be a "duty" fee for me to pay when the EP arrived... UHG! JM

But that's still less than what it costs to ship that same eyepiece inside Canadian borders. Go figure, eh?
