Tina I never did find these or anything else in that price range locally I liked.
This Tuesday evening, just for the heck of it I thought I would check online again. I found Eagle Optics in Wisconsin had the Celestrons in stock now whereas they & Amazon did not before! I noted Eagle has NO shipping charges over $50 purchase. So I ordered from them--- Wednesday AM I got a verification of order and that they were shipped ! Yesterday---(Friday) PM they arrived promptly by FedX as promised. They seem very worth that price and I think they will work out fine.
I wanted to get these rather then something else mainly because of the Cornell report. Others have always praised Eagle Optics service and prompt shipping. I've bought from them before & was satisfied.
Now to work on getting a better camera
