Rare Orange Celestron Super C8 with Byers Worm Gear Drive. This is not
a Plus Model. This came before that and very few orange tubes were made like
this. The optics perform well and are in excellent shape; small/usual amount of
dust/dew spots are present on the corrector. Includes OTA, original forks,
drive, corrector cap, power cord, 1.25" visual back, and rare 6X30
matching orange finder scope/bracket. Also includes original wedge and hard to
find and appropriate Celestron fixed height spider leg tripod. Note, the tripod
does have some rust spotting as pictured and the plastic knobs on the wedge are
starting to show their age (see pictures).
The drive system in this model is the very accurate Byers
359 tooth worm gear system with a single synchronous AC motor. The internal
light works. Comes installed with high precision encoders, untested as
pictured. Original Celestron Corrector serial # 818778.
Please carefully review all pictures as they are a part of the
description. The C8 is definitely a conversation piece at any star party and a joy to use.
Shipped continental US only or free local pickup. Will ship the telescope OTA/fork in one box and the tripod/wedge in another for safe arrival Contact me with any questions & thanks for looking.
