The critical temperature Tc, and the angular and temperature dependences of the upper critical field Hc2 in highly oriented pseudo-single crystals of C8K have been studied by using a magnetic susceptibility measurement. The magnetic susceptibility abruptly changes around 139 mK at zero field. The angular dependence of Hc2 shows a very large anisotropy.
