Help - I am looking for a dovetail bar to mount my classic orange tube (circa 1976) C-8 to a new CG-5 GOTO mount! The orange/rust colored dovetail bar Celestron sells today will not fit my older scope. I am told I need an older bar that comes in black. The correct bar should be 13.25" long with 2 holes at the back end of the scope that are 1.75" apart (center to center spacing). Then there should be one hole in the front of the bar. The distance from the front center hole to the rear pair of holes is 12.25", and the bar should be 1.75" wide where it connects to the mount. I am told that the bar has a chrome plated strip of metal on one edge. I live in San Diego and am willing to pay shipping. If you have such a bar, please reply back with details, price and photo, if possible. Thank you!
