Are you talking about the image being inverted? If yes, then there are "image erectors" that will make the view with the correct left to right, and up and down orientation. However, typically they are only used on refractor telescopes.
Telescopes generally will display images upside-down, due to the way the image is magnified. On many telescopes, the eyepiece is removable, and can be exchanged with many different attachments and lenses. One of which being an image rectifier (or image flipper), which flips the image back to normal. Unfortunately these lenses can be pretty expensive, and will reduce the amount of light being passed through the telescope due to the addition of more lenses, so are only primarily used for day terrestrial viewing. Hope this helps.
All astronomical telescopes show the view upside down. it is the properties of the mirrors/lenses. Ther is no up and down in space. You will get used to it. For terrestrial viewing, you can buy a erect image diagonal (for refractors and SCTs) or a erect image eyepiece for refractors. This is not recommended for astronomy since it reduces contrast.
All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. There is no up or down in space. To ERECT the image would take additional GLASS lenses. MORE glass means less light pass-through for those dim sky objects.
Not unusual; it depends on the number and kind of lenses being used.
If you take a single lense (such as one for aging eyes), hold it between you and a window (or other light source), allow it to shine on a sheet of paper, a wall or even your hand, you will find that the image is inverted.
Actually, the light entering your eye is an inverted image on the retina and our clever brains turn it 'right side up.'
oh this is normal,because when looking at stars it really doesnt matter if they are inverted,but by leaving out the erecting lenses you get more light and less distortion. so you need an erecting lense to see images in the daytime,call bushnell@18004233537,im sure they can sell you the right adaptable piece....good luck...firstname.lastname@example.org
the image in your telescope is suposed to be upside down (you'll find it's back to front too!). The reason for this is to get as much light to the eye as possible, the more lenses/mirrors the light has to go through/reflect off, the greater the light loss, and in astronomy you need all the light you can get.
For terestrial viewing, you can purchase, quite cheeply, an image erecting adaptor. This will make your image the right way up. For the best terestrial viewing, you can still purchase prismatic adaptors. Best bet would be ebay.
If I can be of any further help, don't hesitate
As we all learned in grade school, telescopes produce an upside down image - it's okay for astronomical use since upside down doesn't matter. If you want an image like you'd see in a pair of binoculars, get an image erector from a telescope accessory store to add to your eyepiece.
