My only complaint about Carbonite is how long it takes to upload a week's worth of photos...actually more of a complaint about my internet connection, I guess. It's a very cheap and easy insurance policy.
In the bay area (California) I use, http://www.photoworkssf.com/ I've also used http://www.bayphoto.com/ in the past but not that much anymore.
Have you considered the Samyang/Rokinon 14/2.8? It looks like it's very sharp and woth very low chromatic aberrations and no coma. I'm considering it myself as my night sky lens. I think that the 17-40/4 might be a little too slow to photograph stars.
