    And moving the message from the subject line to the body of the
    post where it belongs.

    Where on that page does it say "made in china"?

    I did find, "made in the U.S.A. by Celestron".

    Well, Rich is actually Chinese and he's trying to steal all the credit
    for Celestron's good optics. He works for slave wages, i.e.,
    $.02/troll in SAA.

    But for how much longer? Looks like they are OEM-ing their tubes -- are
    they trying to get more volume through the CA plant? Synta may have told
    them to sink or swim.

    Not sad in the least. Rich needs to mop his eyes and realize that the
    Celestrons are as good as ever, and maybe they can make a profit. Good
    for them. So far I believe only the 6" SCT is made outside--and mine is
    as good as any I have owned made stateside--but I am sure in the long
    run they all will.

    Did not see anything in the link but did not look that close... I did find
    out that the Celestron binoculars are made in China...

    Good

    So were Russian optics when they stole all the secrets from Zeiss
    after WW2.
