I was made aware that orion recently acquired meade instruments (from bankruptcy?). I thought both meade and celestron were wings of the same company (synta). Is that incorrect? Were meade and celestron simply 2 companies that recently had new binos that were identical in specs (if not in color!)- the meade masterclass and the celestron regal line. Simply the same supplier? Thanks in advance, Pat

Meade was previously owned by Ningbo Sunny Electronic, except the European subsidiary which was sold to Bresser IIRC.
