The Eighth Cambridge Survey (8C) is an astronomical catalogue of celestial radio sources as measured at 38-MHz. It was published in 1990 by the Radio Astronomy Group of the University of Cambridge. Sources are labelled 8C HHMM+DDd where HHMM is the Right Ascension in hours and minutes, and DDd is the Declination in degrees and tenths of a degree, e.g. 8C 0014+861 for a source at Right Ascension 00 14 and 86.1 degrees Declination in 1950 coordinates.
