You only use this for terrestrial viewing, all astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's normal.
However, what you need is called an "erecting prism" these are available from several on-line retailers. Here is one for sale:
You have two problems: First the erecting prism probably costs almost as much as you paid for the telescope. Second they usually come ion 1.25 inch size, your telescope may be a .965 inch. Measure the hold where the eyepiece goes and see which size you have.
Sometimes Telescope Warehouse on Ebay has the .965 size.

This is a small refractor telescope-- they pretty much all work the same-- BUT don't expect to get more than 100 power out of the scope. Yes I know the box said 600 power but it's a lie. In my 8 inch telescope I rarely get above 250 power and my scope is many times larger than the one you have--
Now put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope-- the LARGER the number the LOWER the magnification. During the day time practice focusing on a distant object --- AND line-up the small finder scope on top with the main telescope tube. Look at the top of a distant light or church steple, or telephone pole. Without moving the telescope adjust the small finder scope by loosening and tightening the screws around the tube holding the finder scope-- put the crosshairs on the same spot as the main telescope.
Now you can use the small finder to locate objects in the sky-- the moon should be your first night time target.

Sure wish you had not bought that telescope. It has the same aperture as a pair of binoculars, 10x50mm, the binoculars would have been better.
Take the lens cap off=
Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope, and go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.
