This scope sat for years unused (well protected in its box) until I equipped it with Lumicon’s NGC Skyvector DSC just last year (digital setting circles). In one night I saw more Messier objects from my light polluted back yard than ever before! The optics are simply top notch – and always have been. In comparison to my newly acquired C11, it typically performs on equal despite its age. The Classic 8 utilizes a surprisingly accurate (for visual observations) spur gear system which tracks very well after a simple “point at Polaris” alignment. With the Sky Vector computer, I can look at more objects in less time than any goto system. If you are looking at a C8 purchase, without DSC’s you’ll end up buying them later (new --$400 w/o hardware). Selling the scope, accessories, Sky Vector and all hardware/encoders for $850 – that means you’re getting the C8 for $450! I’ll also consider selling the Sky Vector DSC plus hardware for $300.
