    We present the first experimental determination of absolute line emission cross sections, resulting from charge changing collisions of bare oxygen ions with atomic hydrogen. The O VIII lines resulting from the dominantly populated n=5 level confirm to a large extent the almost coinciding theoretical data obtained with an MO approach by Shipsey et al. and with an AO+ approach by Fritsch and Lin. Emission from the non-dominantly populated n = 6 level is found to be stronger than predicted by theory and favours the MO data
