Bob, I recently purchased several electronic components for a led lamp from capital electronics in phoenix. 2105 W. McDowell Rd., Phoenix, AZ? - (602) 252-5897? They seemed to be very knowledgable and have alot of components in their shop. I'm not sure if they are open on Saturdays. Definitely worth a try. Good luck, Steve Mc Allister ----- Original Message ----- From: "Bob Christ" <bchrist@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <az-observing@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, January 23, 2009 8:01 AM Subject: [AZ-Observing] Need a pointer please >I have been unsuccessful in my search to buy a 1.5µF 20V Tantalum >electrolytic capacitor in the Valley.
