Used Celestron C8 telescope mounting plate pair from a vintage Celestron SP-C8 set. Originally the long plate was bolted to the top of a Celestron/Vixen Super Polaris GEM mount, the square plate was bolted to the bottom of the rear cell of a C8 8" SCT telescope and slid onto the fixed plate on the mount. Note while the mount plate looks like a current Vixen-spec dovetail (and was designed and built by Vixen) it is NOT the same and is not interchangeable.
WHO WE ARE: Oddog2 is a husband/wife team, home-based small business specializing in the buying/refurbishment/selling of primarily photographic equipment. We do occasionally have other types of things to sell that come to us as a result of our search for camera-related items. We have 47 years of experience (22 years as a hobby, 25 as a full time effort) with photographic equipment, both as a shooter (17 years newspaper photojournalist) and as a collector/restorer/seller. We have been on eBay as Oddog or Oddog2 since September 1999.
