Can you provide a picture of the back and of the information under the orange cap where the collimation screws are?

Looks like a 90s C8 Classic.

I agree with jeffreym. The tripod and base give it away. It would be '92-ish.

Judging by the mount i'd say it was a Celestar with the wedge pod manufactured from 1996 to 2000??
