This paper describes the calculation of the character table of the 8-dimensional orthogonal group of maximal index over the field with 3 elements. The group is of interest as it is a subgroup of relatively small index in the sporadic simple group $M(23)$ defined by B. Fischer [2]. The group also has an outer automorphism group of order 24, isomorphic to the symmetric group on 4 symbols.
