I got these filters as a set a few years back and mainly used the masked one. I'm doing more upgrades to my Tak FS for this summer, so these will fund it. Both filters come with their original boxes with original labels and are from the 1983-85 era.

BOTH of these filters will fit ANY C8 or Meade 8 ever made that I know of.

Full aperture glass filter. Cosmetics are a solid excellent. NO dents, un-true form, deep scratches, or touch ups. The paint is a beautiful gold. Felt is perfect and all hex top bolts are original. The glass is in excellent condition on the front and very excellent on the back. NO need to clean any part of it. No chips, cracking, major scratches, or coating holes. $90.00 sold

Aperture mask 3" glass solar filter. Same as above, but the filter is off axis to the side and, of course smaller. Very beautiful construction and definitely in collectible condition for your clean, orange C8 setup. Cosmetics are very excellent. Glass on both sides is very excellent. Lovely, original gold finish on the aluminum. These are harder to find. $82.00 sold

Price doesn't include shipping. I'm happy to ship to anyone on the planet.


  • Condition excellent to very excellent
