Yes, and a 45 degree one also-- they are called an "erecting prism diagonal". Like this one:

SOURCE: edu science reflector telescope instructions 600x

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.

All astronomical telescopes show upside down images-- no up or down in space!

You can buy one of these to ERECT the image-- make sure you get the correct barrel size usually 1.25 inch although some of those TASCO scopes are .965 inch. Measure the hole--

The end with the focuser. Then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. I believe this model is a REFLECTOR, if it is there is a mirror in the bottom of the scope.

REFRACTORS have a lens in the front of the scope.

See this:

Then read my Frequently Asked Questions TIP on my profile page. The picture you selected shows a REFRACTOR telescope.

You will not find a manual for this telescope. However Toys R Us sells this brand. The store may allow you to copy the manual which is inside the box of a new telescope.

We receive more complaints about this "toy" telescope than just about any other brand. Read this also:

Every thing looks us-side down?


All reflector-style telescopes generate an "up-side-down" image. This is normal. (Remember, there is no up or down in space!) You can, however, buy an erecting prism for terrestrial viewing.

Why are the lens upside down help


It is normal for an astro telescope to show objects upside down, as when viewing astro objects this makes little difference. If you want to view terrestrial things, such as your neighbor's bedroom window, you can fit an erect image diagonal, such as

View finder displays are upsidedown


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.

My name is Raul my reflector telescope edu science brand images are focused Upside when any target in the horizon and would like to see how to fix it right and I would like to send me a manual.


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's completely normal. For terrestrial viewing you will need to buy an "erecting prism" like these:

http://www.astronomics.com/main/Image_Erecting_Prisms.asp/catalog_name/Astronomics/category_name/EDNECFUVSRWS8KLNTU5E38XSE1/Page/1

Edu Scientific telescopes do not have manuals. They are being sold by Toys R Us, and are really not intended for actual astronomical use. We receive more complaints on this brand than all others. Craigslist.com has many of these types of scopes for sale because after buying them the people find out they are almost unusable.

This is not a telescope. This is a toy sold by "Toys R Us" among others. may be slightly useful with the 20mm eyepiece for terrestrial viewing.

We are seeing things upside down. Any ideas why?


Because ALL astronomical telescopes show upside down images. You would need more glass elements to ERECT the image. However you can buy an "erecting prism" for terrestrial viewing.

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:
http://www.astronomics.com/main/Image_Erecting_Prisms.asp/catalog_name/Astronomics/category_name/EDNECFUVSRWS8KLNTU5E38XSE1/Page/1

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.

My 102mm astro-nova telescope shows everthing upside down. am i missing a piece for my telescope?


No, all astronomical telescopes show upside down images. You can buy what is called an "erecting prism" (just Google it) to use for terrestrial viewing.

Remember --- no up or down in space! Read my "TIPS" in my Profile, called ----"Frequently Asked Question".

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.
