I was just given a 1981 Orange tube C8 by a fellow CNer
Now I just need a few hardware pieces to complete it. I have the OTA on the original fork mount, a wedge and tripod. I need the bolts to hold the wedge to the tripod and the mount to the wedge. Can anyone tell me what thread size these would be?
The other part we couldn't find was the power cord for the AC drive motor, the three prong oval end. That I will do more searching for. It is a beautiful scope with great optics. I can't wait to try it out on Mars
I figure just some bolts with wing nuts would work for the wedge to tripod mounting and simple bolts for mount to wedge, doesn't have to be stock parts.
Thanks in advance.
