I have a Celestron C-8 Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope, Vintage Orange Style, Serial Numbers, Aluminum Secondary holder. Usually, when you get an older orange one with the serial number plate, and an aluminum secondary holder, the optics are great. This scope has great opitics as all these sorta orange tubes do. It also has its own serial number, and aluminum secondary holder. This telescope is fully functional and the drive works great. The later model celestrons went to using plastic. As all vintage orange tubes, this one is not an exception, it also has great optics, along with the durable older, style, craftsmanship. Contus bidders only. No overseas bidding. This telescope does not come with the wedge pictured, but it does come with the visual back that is seen in picture. My telescopes are well lubed, and calibrated. The optical calibration my move during shipping and may need reset. Get your orange tube while you can, soon they won't be available anymore.
