NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! You should NEVER EVER EVER raise for info. You should raise that flop for value. You don't know he has Q8. He has a range.
Let's say it's 22+,A5s+,K6s+,Q7s+,J8s+,T9s,A8o+,K9o+,Q9o+,JTo (~25% range so not very tight). Against that range you have ~85% equity. Against a realistic range that continues if you raise the flop (all of his flush draws, straight draws, sets, overpairs, 2 pair hands) you have about 66% equity. That's the only information you need.
