I dragged the scope out again tonight. I was finally able to image with the Basler A102f through the C8! I recorded via FireCapture into AVI format about 19s worth and stacked with AutoStakkert!2. f/6.3 focal reducer to help it all fit.. It was in the vicinity of my chimney so I'm actually quite amazed at how the stacker was able to make it all work...

Full size lossless image here (in case this one is too small): http://charleskelleystevenson.com/moon_Moon_250215_200520_g3_ap1_conv.png

Edit: oops... forgot to flip it so it's how it should look to the eye. sorry ;(
