Konus was founded in Italy, 1979. The products are rebranded chinese made items. The Konusmotor 114/900 is a standard asian 4.5in f/8 spherical newtonian (with a included ra box drive).
UK vendor remarks
Probably made by Synta or JOC. Same as Celestron, Tasco, Meade, etc. in build and quality.

I thought KONUS was strictly spotting scopes. Pete
I had a Konus 150mm F/8 refractor way back. It was exactly the same as the Skywatcher 150 F/8 except it was a bright orange/yellow colour. It was a decent example of that type of scope though and really rather cheap
