I have a Celestron C8. There are two sets of spacing for the mounting holes, one set appears to be about 1.25 inches, the other about 1.75 (as measured between holes). Will this mount fit the smaller spacing?

The holes which are 1.25 inches apart are specifically designed for that purpose, so the Baader Standard Base will fit there perfectly. The other holes are meant for an additional dove tail to mount accessories on top of the OTA. In each case, you should use only the original screws or short screws because long screws might damage the primary mirror.
