I have a C8 I purchased new in 1980. This is the orange tube version, without coatings of any kind: however, the optics are really excellent, and the views are as good as they get for an 8" scope. It has an adjustable wedge, and the "locked tri-angle" tripod. Extras include:
Full aperature Celestron glass solar filter
Orion dual axis driver corrector
All is in very good condition. The only "flaws" are 2 small (1/4") holes I drilled about half way up the fork arms to accomodate an accessory at some point in the past.
This is a great scope looking for a good home. I am asking $650 shipped US for the package. All offers considered!
Thanks for looking...Ken
