Does anyone know what's going on in the ortho market? Clicking on University Optics' website brings up the message: "Thank you for visiting, but this web site has been closed down at the request of its owner."

Going to Agena's website shows that AstroHutech orthos and Kasai Trading Co.'s eyepieces are on closeout - all sales final, no returns accepted.

My understanding is that basically all of these orthos and other Japanese eyepieces are all made in the same factory in Japan. Is it possible that there's something going on at that factory? Are orthos done? Does anyone know what's going on here?
