Hi all,

I have recently buyed end restored an Classic Orange C-8; cleaning the tripod, cleaned the optics and lubricated the focusing system. After collimating the optics it showed very sharp views of the Moon, Saturn anddeepsky objets.
I have compared theis 1979 model side by side withe 2 C-8 Ultima. This Classical Celestron with "special coatings" gives more contrasty views on the planets!
