Dan's essay is pretty interesting, for anyone who has not yet visited 
the PhotoMark store.
A slight correction from the DFAC web pages.  According to the PhotoMark 
web page,
They are located at 2202 E. McDowell, on the North side of McDowell, 
between the 51 Freeway (East of) and 24th Street.
They have been at that same location and I have traded with them for 
many, many years.
They are principally a full-service photographic/camera shop, with a 
separate camera repair business, and a full-service photo processing 
shop right next door.
They cater to the more advanced and professional photo imager.

Also, Photon Instruments Ltd. has been in business in Mesa for more than 
5 years...
They are a full-service, well-stocked telescope equipment dealer and 
repair shop.

Before relocating to Mesa, Arizona, they operated a well-known telescope 
repair company in the Eastern U.S. (advertising in Sky & Telescope), 
going on 50 years of service.
