Selling
my
classic
8inch
Celestron Schmidt Cassegrain telescope.
At
f10, this scope delivers great views of planets, lunar,  and
terrestrial viewing, along with some other bright deep sky targets.
The
telescope is in perfect condition and looks so much cooler than the
modern versions.

The
Orange Tube C8’s Optical Tube Assembly (OTA) is very much like
those found on current telescopes. Despite some minor changes in
appearance, everything works pretty much the same way on these as on
the most modern SCTs. The focusing method is the same with the
primary mirror sliding up and down the baffle tube at the turn of a
threaded rod. Accessories mount the same way on a threaded rear part,
and collimation is via
allen
screws
on the secondary housing. The Orange-tube is
also
equipped
with a 30mm finder
which
works well
.

The
scope is held in a fork that rotates on a circular drive base. There
are no sophisticated electronics
but
i
t
does have
an
AC
synchronous drive motor
system
that
can be plugged into a wall socket for normal tracking or into a drive
corrector for photography.

It
comes with the original Celestron “triangle tripod”. This
particular design works incredibly well and provides a very stable
configuration. Unlike many examples of these tripods the legs on this
one are rust and pit free.

Also
included are several eyepieces and other accessories.
