I ran across this post today and didn't realize that Meade and a manufacturer in South America. Is this true? If so, what country?

Inquiring minds want to know...

They may have many years ago, but all eyepiecces and introductory scopes are made in China.  The expensive SCTs are made in Mexico.


If any eyepieces were made in South America, it would have been before the year 2000.  Personally, I have not heard any mention by any Meade personnel of any eyepieces being made anywhere other than Japan, Taiwan, or China.


Hope this helps,
