My Personal C8 . . .

I had a chance to pick up a complete Celestron C8 fork mount.
(I already owned the C8 OTA). The result is nice -- although 
I'll paint the fork "black"!!

I was able to use standard Sky Commander encoder hardware
to mount the right-ascension and declination encoders.
A "home made" center adapter and the RA encode works great.
The "tangent arm just "sits" against the fork.
And the Sky Commander sits on the tripod comfortably.
