Product Questions

I have a Celestron Super C8, purchased new in 1983. I want to take the OTA and mount it on an iOptron45 Pro equatorial. Celestron.com tells me that they no longer make mounting plates to fit, and suggested I look at Losmandy or ADM. I thought you might be able to advise me on this since you handle these items. Can you identify a mounting plate that will work with this old SCT model?

Many thanks.
