    Lightbulb Power Cable for Old Celestron C8



    I have an old orange tube C90 and Orange tube C8. The C8 was missing the power cord for the drive. Does anybody know where I can find one? Thanks so much for your help.

    Those things are really hard to find. Unless someone here has a spare one, it might be easier to replace the receptacle with a modern PC style.

    I posted a wanted ad for a C8 cord on "The Other Forum". 3-4 people with cords to sell responded. About $20 with shipping. Not new but in good shape and proved my motors still work.
