Orion equatorial reflector telescope lens has been flipped over how do you straighten them out

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.

Looking for instruction manual for orion skyview.

If you go to the Orion web site and find your telescope, usually a manual you can download is located somewhere on the same page as the telescope. If not just contact Orion directly from their web site. Here is the link:

I have a c-star t45375 telescope but no user manaual. How can I get one?

Sorry no manuals for that imported telescope being sold on Ebay.

However this is a reflector style scope on a very small equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to be used:

Just put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser and during the day time practice focusing on a distant object. Find a local Astronomy club and the members will help you with the scope.

Hello... I'm kinda new to all this, so please bare with me! I recently purchased a used Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ. The scope is in great shape and things look great through it. However, it did not...

First WHY would you use a erecting DIAGONAL in a reflector style telescope. Upside down images are completely normal for an astronomical telescope. You only need this diagonal for terrestrial viewing NOT for star gazing. ALL astronomical telescopes show upside down and or inverted images- it's completely normal.

If you cannot come to focus with the erecting diagonal, it's probably because the diagonal moves the eyepiece too far OUT away from the point where the scope comes to focus. Again-- you do not use those for night time sky viewing. Just stick the eyepiece directly into the focuser.

Need a manual or a phone number for the company

As you can see from the ONE review here:

A manual does not exist for this imported telescope. This is just one of DOZENS of brands imported from China.

It is a reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to be used.

You will find hundreds of articles on how to use this telescope. Read my TIPS on my profile page and also read this web site:

Latittude adjustment bolt jammed tight on Celestron 130 EQ, I am thinking of taking it to a repair shop, so I don't damage it in attempting to loosen it (its very jammed)

A machine shop should be able to remove the bolt and re-tap the hole if needed if it is stripped.

OR- you can improve this telescope by improving the MOUNT to something like this.
