I recently acquired a mid 80's orange-tube Celestron C8 OTA and am now on the hunt for a cheap/low-cost but functional fork base for it. Cosmetics are not an issue as long as it is complete and it's motors work properly.
I'm wondering if it might fit without modification into any of the more recent (DC powered) bases. Can anyone answer this question or provide more info? I'd prefer a DC base over an AC one if feasible but an AC base will do in a pinch.
Any info or offers appreciated. "Large" pictures OK - I have cable ISP.
Can do PayPal or Money Order.
Thanks for reading,
