Anybody know for sure where the 8" Celestar Deluxe, or its components, were manufactured?  Likely vintage is 1998-99.  I've tried the obvious "official" sources but they are busy - selling new scopes I guess. 

Thanks y'all.  And thank you CN.

Yep. Torrance, California. The electronics were made by Tangent Instruments, also in California. ;)
