first time posting and i hope my question has not already been asked and answered. I've searched here and googled a lot for the answer to no avail.

Does anyone know if Skywatcher manufactures it's mounts or do they contract out to German manufacturers? Thanks.

And Synta is the parent company of Skywatcher and Celestron. They also manufacture Orion mounts.
