Celestron C8 f/10 Post-1980 with Standard Threads

Celestron C8 f/10 Post-1980 with Standard Threads

These knobs fit post-1980 Celestron C8 with factory Allen or silver Phillips collimation screws, with or without Fastar secondary with silver collimation screws.

Fits: Celestron 8” (20 cm) f/10 post-1980 SCT with factory Allen or silver Phillips collimation screws, with or without Fastar secondary with silver collimation screws (C8 black, or gray; Ultima 2000; NexStar 8; others). This includes the post-2000 orange-tube. Will not fit pre-1980 orange tube or most scopes with black Phillips factory collimation screws.

Knobs: Black plastic, 13 mm (1/2”) diameter

Threads: Black anodized aluminum alloy

Notes:

  1. These knobs will fit C8 models made prior to 2005 (except pre-1980 orange tube), and most post-2005 models with silver factory collimation screws.
  2. Most models with black Phillips factory collimation screws require C8 metric knobs (Item C below). However, a few post-2005 scopes have black Phillips collimation screws with standard threads. Here are some hints to help determine which screws your telescope has. Make sure the knob threads match the factory screw threads before installing the knobs.
  3. We provide spacers to raise the knobs slightly for easier use, but the spacers can be omitted if the knobs contact the inside of the full-aperture dust cover. Spacers are required for knobs installed on the Fastar secondary with silver collimation screws for proper clearance.
  4. Some telescope versions have a small plastic cover over the factory collimation screws. This cover must be removed and set aside when Bob's Knobs are installed. The cover is cosmetic only and will not affect operation of the scope.
