One of our club members, Tom, brought his vintage C-8 to Astronomy day yesterday. It's mounted on a Meade tripod, but the rest is vintage Celestron.

Serial number is 803316 which I think takes it to 1978 manufacture.

What an invaluable resource!

 

Here's mine (sold as a Super Polaris C8).  I'm at least the second owner (South Pasadena, Ca.) bought from a vendor on the East Coast.  I added the Bob's Knobs.

Okay, go easy on me if this has been answered elsewhere in this thread:

 

is there anyway to know where the C8s were made?
