An inverted image is what you should see. Astronomical telescopes show an upside down image in the eyepiece. If you want to use your scope terrestrially you can add an erecting prism at the eyepiece.

I have one of these telescopes and the problems is you are not using the right eyepiece lens with the proper extender. I had to figure this problem out also. now everything is right side up.

Why when I look through my telescope it's upside down


The image in astronomical telescopes are naturally upside down. This can be corrected using an inverting eyepiece . The reason this is the case, is that normally when viewing astronomical objects it doesn't matter if the image is upside down, so to minimise the loss of light that is the more important issue, unnecessary optical surfaces are eliminated. Terrestrial telescopes do naturally have inverting eyepieces as people expect to see objects the right way up.
Getting and inverting eyepiece will be cheaper the changing telescopes! :) Your eyes see everything upside down too, but your brain turns the image the right way up. The image in cameras is also upside down at the image plane, but the electronics turn it the right way up for you.

Everything is upside down on side eye piece. When viewing through the scope that's on the side of the telescope itself, everything is upside down. No matter which way it is turned, the same problem exists.


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's completely normal. Nothing is wrong with the scope. For terrestril viewing you can buy an "erecting prism diagonal" which will turn the images right side up.

Yes, all astronomical telescopes show images upside down. There is no up or down in space.

Everything is upside down


Astronomical telescopes produce an upside-down and reversed image (image is rotated 180 degrees from an upright position) since this doesn't matter when you are looking at things in the night sky. Accessories are available for rotating the image to an upright position, but most of those accessories do not work well with Newtonian style reflector telescopes such as the 114EQ reflector.

Everything is upside down its an inexpensive national geogra childs telescope when you look thru it everything is upside down


Yes all astronomical telescopes are upside down! No up or down in space!

You can buy an erecting diagonal for about $45 from Orion Telescopes to use for terrestrial viewing.

When i look thru eyepiece everything leans to one side


In space there is no up down right or left-- all astronomical telescopes show land objects upside down-- you can buy an erecting prism to use for terrestial viewing here--

Everything is upside down thru the lens


Reflector telescopes are design for looking at stars, and in space there is no right side up. Try taking it out at night and look at the moon. Your telescope is performing just as it should, there are no problems with upside down views when looking at objects on the ground.

View is upside down


Yes-- all astronomical telescope are upside down--

NO --- UP or DOWN in outer space! Reversing the image just introduces more "glass" into the optical train.

When i look through the lens everything is upside down.


It is normal for a telescope to invert the image. There is no up or down in space so for astronomical use it does not matter.

The reflector telescope is not generally used for terrestrial viewing. However, image erectors can be purchased and are inserted before the eyepiece. This would make everything right side up.
