... but not labelled Skywatcher.

Orion US clearly has a contract as a reseller, which implies Skywatcher will not sell gear with their label on it there. It’s not a sole agency though as Synta maks are retailed as both Orion and Celestron products.

Synta is playing a shell game (with labels). Orion wanted a bigger slice of a shrinking pie despite being a retailer, not a manufacturer (greedy imho). Meade got it wrong, were bought out and now are basically stuffed after losing the lawsuit.
