For sale is an original orange tube 8x50 finder scope that was originally mounted to a Celestron C8. I inherited this little scope from a friend and don't have any need for it. The scope has a helical focuser, diagonal, and 0.965" eyepiece (the original crosshair eyepiece is lost, so the eyepiece you'll be getting is not original). The optics are very good except for some obvious scratching in the anti-reflection coating on the objective lens (you can just barely make this out in one of the pics - looks like someone tried to wipe dew off the objective leading to the scratching). The exterior is an overall good condition with some scratches/marring on the tube (see pics). The O-ring retainer was rotten and brittle, so I replaced it with a new one. I also had a friend machine me a new aluminum mounting bracket to mount to the finder to the C8 tube because the original bracket was quite rusty. All in all, a decent little finder scope for those who wish to "upgrade" their vintage C8.

Price is $100 (Paypal only please) plus $15 shipping.
